    My Story

    Yakov was born and raised in Israel and currently lives in New York City. Yakov is a highly experienced teacher of Hebrew and Israeli culture. Since he relocated to the US, Yakov has been working as a Hebrew teacher and a youth guide in several schools and Jewish community centers in Manhattan. During his career, Yakov has worked with diverse populations and age groups, including children with special needs. His passion for education began during his military service as a commander in an elite IDF unit where he was responsible for educating the next generation of Israel. Following his military service, Yakov was engaged in various army-preparation programs, and he went on to study education in college. Yakov believes that having fun in class is the key to learning. Perseverance, investment, and hard work are the hallmarks of success.
