Meet the New Teaneck NCSY Advisors

By� Teaneck NCSY has grown over the past five years from 200 to 600 teens. This past year, 200 Teaneck teens have attended chesed missions. New Jersey NCSY, with an eye toward the future, is launching their plan for further growth. This year NJ NCSY is moving from one Teaneck couple to five, three of which will be living in Teaneck. The plan includes increasing their chesed mission follow-ups, creating more local chesed opportunities, increasing their all-girls 4G program, and growing the all-boys community beit midrash (CBM), which will include father-son opportunities as well. NJ NCSY will also increase programming in Beth Aaron and the Young Israel. In addition to NJ NCSY’s five Teaneck couples, who will be under the mentorship of Rabbi Andrew Israeli, they have also hired Yehoshua and Rivka Szafranski as the LEAD and staff coordinators.

After living in Jerusalem for three years, Zev and Bracha Kahane have moved to Teaneck where they hope to spread that Jerusalem kedusha they were blessed to experience. Zev, who grew up in Teaneck, went to TABC, Shaalvim and Yeshiva University. While in Israel he learned at RIETS’ Gruss Kollel and taught in Torat Shraga, Mevaseret and Shaalvim for Women. This year, in addition to working for NCSY, Zev will be a middle-school rebbe at Moriah. Bracha, who grew up in Cedarhurst, went to HAFTR, Ba’er Miriam and Queens College. The Kahanes strive to build an open and warm house where students always feel welcomed and comfortable.
