Yonatan Kurz is originally from Teaneck, NJ. After having attended TABC for high school, followed by two years in Israel learning at Yeshivat Sha’alvim, he is currently a student at Yeshiva University, where he is majoring in political science and psychology. He has previously been an advisor on NCSY Summer for the past two summers on different programs after having been a camper on NCSY Summer, and he has also been a youth leader in his community and an older mentor in his school. He is very eager and enthusiastic about all the potential that comes with the Shevet Glaubach Fellowship, as he knows that it is a tremendous opportunity for growing Jewish leaders to have a profound impact on various communities. The ability to share one’s excitement for Torah and Jewish life with others while building lifelong relationships is truly an incredibly enriching and meaningful experience, and having such hands-on experience in other communities with fellow leaders of the Jewish Future who share the same passion and devotion to communal growth and leadership is an incredible opportunity. The chance to give back and have a tremendous impact on the Jewish community while making a difference in the lives of others and emulating those who have had a lasting influence on his religious growth means everything to him, and he is very excited about the possibility of joining this fellowship.
