Matthew is a 25 year old Los Angeles native who has been to Israel over a dozen times. Matthew helped form and lead the pro-Israel organization on his university campus. Following graduation he became president of LedorVador, a non-profit Jewish youth organization. Matthew began leading Taglit Birthright trips over the past three years. The joy of guiding fresh new faces to Israel was extremely rewarding. After his latest trip in the summer of 2013 he decided to stay and work at a high tech start up in Tel Aviv. Becoming fully immersed in Israeli culture solidified his devotion to the land. An unfortunate leg injury brought Matthew back Los Angeles.
