Camp Director
Ben joined the Moshava Ba’ir family in January 2020 after making Aliyah with his wife and six children following a 17-year career as a classroom teacher and Junior High Principal at the Fuchs Mizrachi School in Cleveland, Ohio. While the day of a Camp Director is action packed, Ben loves to head upstairs to the chadar ochel (lunchroom) for at least a few moments each camp day to witness the incredible energy, joy and ruach (spirit) of our campers as they experience the chinuch (educational) skits and the singing of birkat hamazon.
