Natalie Parry grew up in Perth, Western Australia, in one of the most remote Jewish communities in the world (about 8,000 Jews with the closest community, in Singapore, 4,000 km away). She attended the Jewish community school (Carmel) and then learned for a year and a half at Midreshet Lindenabaum in Jerusalem. After returning to Perth to be a madricha with Bnei Akiva, she made aliyah in January 2019, and became a madricha for a Bnei Akiva gap year program called Limmud. Natalie then had the privilege of going to Ethiopia to volunteer at Kaytana Hatikva in the Jewish community of Gondar, a community about the same size she grew up in, and also one of the most remote In the world. Currently, Natalie is studying at Mechina at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
