They just finished their third summer as staff at Camp Lavi where Sammy was a member of the chinuch team and Director of the Kadima Program, and Yael was the Head of Girls Campus.

Sammy grew up in Potomac, Maryland and after learning in Yeshivat HaKotel he attended Yeshiva University Sy Syms School of Business.
