Nirit Gelfer

Israel Fellow

Nirit joined the Central Florida Hillel team in August 2018. She is originally from a moshav (small town) in Israel. Nirit graduated from college in the North of Israel in mid2018, studying special education and art. She was very involved in Hillel on her college campus and is so excited to be in Orlando. This is her second time in the United States, the first time was when she was a counselor for summer camp. Nirit has worked with many different programs with American students in Israel. She loves working with people and has found that this work is really meaningful and necessary for the Jewish people. All of this has lead to her becoming an Israel Fellow to continue to grow her relationships with the Jewish community and to connect them to Israel. Nirit is really excited to be here and to start a new adventure at UCF!
