Say “Shalom” to Coby Tuchman, the 2017 Kesher Merakez from Plantation, FL.
Coby studies Film, TV, and Business at New York University. This will be his fifth summer as a staff member following his many summers as a camper. He recalls his favorite day of Bogrim 2010: Yom Sport. “What we lacked in athletic ability,” Tuchman reminisces, “we more than made up for in ruach.”
Coby is proud to share that he can do “that raindrop sound á la Cameron in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
Leon Faigenblat, known as Papito to some of his friends, will be the Tsofim Merakez this summer!
He was born in Bogota, Colombia but grew up in Hollywood, Florida. He currently attends Santa Fe College in Gainesville, FL and will be starting at the University of Florida in the fall. In his free time, he enjoys playing soccer (really any sport) and Xbox.
Leon was a Camp Judaea camper from Sayarim through Bogrim, listing his favorite memory as living in the Tabins with his friends during their Kesher summer. He participated in our MIT (madrichim in training) program and Young Judaea’s Machon before his senior year of high school, then went on Young Judaea’s Year Course after graduating.
This will be his fifth summer working at Camp Judaea and his second summer in a supervisory role. Welcome back, Leon!
