Meet Yasmin

Yasmin Drescher, our new shlichawas born in West Hartford, CT, and moved to Israel when she was 12. She is fully conversant in the cultures of both communities and will bring to Agudas a unique and different voice. Yasmin is concluding her military service in the elite 8200 Intelligence Unit as an Arabic translator.
   Prior to her army service, Yasmin participated in a gap-year program that brought together Israelis of diverse backgrounds, especially those on the socio-economic periphery, to live and learn together. She would like to bring to our community an understanding of the “beautiful tapestry” that Israelis of all backgrounds create together.
   Yasmin loves reading, running, hiking and spending time with friends and family. 
   She said that when she was living in West Hartford the synagogue was a second home to her and she looks forward to creating a home at Agudas. 
   Yasmin will arrive in early September and we look forward to welcoming her into our community in person.
