Rina Olivestone of Teaneck and Josh Gottesman of Chicago Honored as NCSY Advisors of the Year

09 Sep 2008

Said Rabbi Steven Burg, International Director of NCSY, “Rina spent most of last year traveling across the continental United States to places where NCSY isn’t always able to venture, most notably Portland, OR. She did a great job reaching out to teens who aren’t usually touched by the Jewish community. Josh is an extraordinary young man who showed he has great potential reaching out to unaffiliated Jewish teens. At 21, he is also the youngest person to direct one of NCSY’s summer programs, The Jerusalem Journey (TJJ).”
