Host a Summer Shlichim

Hi everyone! My name is Chen Averbuch and this summer I’m coming to Denver as the Israeli Culture specialist at Camp Shai! I am 21years old, and I live in Raanana, a small city near Tel Aviv. Two months ago I finished my army service as an Education Non-Commissioned Officer in the education department of the IDF. I had a great time!! A bit about my family in Israel: I live with my mom, Sara, and my dad, A vi. I also have two siblings. Shir, and Hadar. I love spending time with my family and friends. In my free time, I like dancing and traveling around Israel. I am very excited to come to Camp Shai and look forward to seeing you!
