Recently, Lucy completed a year as a JAFI Israel Fellow at Hillel York University in Toronto. As an Israel Fellow, Lucy was working with the Jewish students on campus, creating and leading events and activities on issues that are connected to Israel and Judaism.
Lucy received a B.Ed. from the Kibbutzim College of Education in Tel Aviv in 2014. Previous to that she served in the IDF in the medical corps. She has significant experience in leading and working with groups of various ages – children, teenagers and adults. She has taught in summer camps, student seminars, MASA Israel programs and at the Weizmann Institute of Science. She speaks three languages – Hebrew, English and Russian.
Lucy is very excited to be back in Canada for the second time as a Shlicha, this time for the Atlantic Jewish Council in partnership with the Canadian Zionist Federation and the Department for Diaspora Activities of the World Zionist Organization. She is eager to meet the community in Atlantic Canada and to celebrate the Jewish High Holidays with everyone.
Lucy will be here in Halifax for only two months (mid August to mid October), so make sure to say hello and welcome her to the Maritimes!
