Hi! My name is Yaakov Fuchs, and I hail from Woodmere, NY. After attending DRS Yeshiva High School, I spent two years learning at Yeshivat Shaalvim, and I am currently a sophomore at Yeshiva University, both learning Torah and studying political science. I am hoping to continue learning for semichah after I graduate. I was heavily impacted by NCSY as a high schooler, both as a member of NCSY’s JUMP leadership program, and as an NCSY’er on the NCSY Summer Kollel. Those formative experiences and the madrichim who made them happen shaped many of my decisions throughout high school, and their reverberations are felt in an inexplicably real way today. I am excited to have the opportunity to be a Shevet Glaubach Fellowship, G-D willing, create those experiences for others!
