Shira Nimchinsky

Assigned to Palm Beach community, From Houston, TX


Hi my name is Shira Nimchinsky. I was born in Houston Texas but I’m from all over. I’m currently a sophomore in Stern College for Women and living in New York City. Last year I went to Israel for the first time in my life and it was the best experience I’ve ever had. I spent my gap year in Shaalvim for Women, a seminary in Jerusalem. Because my family moved very often while I was in high school, I started to do NCSY so I could meet the Jewish kids in my new community. I felt like I was touched by NCSY just like anyone would be, but inspired to come back after I graduated. That brings me to where I am now, an adviser for Southern NCSY.
