“I love sports and traveling. My wife and I went to Brazil for the World Cup last year, so that’s a great way to combine both passions. It was kind of like the big trip before we had kids and now we’re expecting our first kid!
Brazil was an amazing travel experience for getting to know a lot more about the culture, because we got to stay in a Brazilian’s home. When I went to Thailand two years ago, it was an amazing trip—I loved it—but I didn’t get to know any Thai people; I didn’t build a relationship with the country. I worked in Mexico for a few months. That was a great experience because I actually got to know the country. I met Mexican Jews! I didn’t know anyone in that community beforehand, and I got to celebrate Passover there. I went to Israel for the 7th time, but with a group of non-Jews as part of a mission organized by the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs. Now that was a different way of seeing Israel!”
