Hi! My name is Tal Yaron from Hollywood, FL. I go to Dr. Michael Krop Senior High- a public school in Aventura. When I was in 9th grade, I quickly realized that attending a public school limited my jewish studies. I turned to NCSY. Initially, I was involved minimally. After my Shuval TJJ experience, my involvement with NCSY instantly increased. Over the course of three years, my Judaism has become more of a focal point in my life and I will forever be thankful to NCSY. After continuous years of leadership seminars, I know that every leader has more to learn. JOLT -an NCSY leadership summer program- is the perfect opportunity for me to continue learning and growing as a young Jewish leader. JOLT will enable me to give back just as I was once given.
