Learn 4 Summer

Hayley Tanzman

Hi! I'm Hayley Tanzman. I am 16 years old from Queens NY in Midreshet Shalhevet High School For Girls. I am privileged for the past 2, almost 3 years to have been surrounded by NCSY non-stop.

The summer of 2015 is when it all started on my first NCSY program. I was given the amazing opportunity to attend NCSY's summer program GIVE West, where I was able to learn, tour and to amazing Chessed along the west coast of the U.S. Once I was hooked on NCSY from that summer I started attending NCSY shabbatons during the year, in the NY and Central east regions. After an inspirational year of NCSY I was given another amazing opportunity to attend NCSY's summer program Michlelet, where I was able to learn, tour and do Chessed in Israel. Once I got home from the summer I was ready to start a year fully involved in NCSY as part of the Queens NCSY chapter board. Close after school started again I realized, once this year was over I would have to do something for the summer again. I never thought I would be able to say I am being given another chance to be able to go on Michlelet again. Last summer I was able to grow and know myself in ways I never thought I could, and to be able to have the chance to do that again is amazing.

In order to help my parents for giving me the chance to go on my 3rd NCSY summer program, I have chosen to learn a bit more than I usually do. I have signed up to learn all of parshat Matos, all of megilat Kohelet and the first perek of Mishlei.

I hope everyone is able to support me in my learning so I can enjoy my 3rd and final summer with NCSY.
