Lives in Ramat Beit Shemesh. 41 years old, married with 6 children. KEMACH launched Yaakov on the road to success when it funded a year of preparatory studies, including English and basic computer skills, at a Haredi college in Bnei Brak. From there he went on to gain his B.Sc. in Computer Science, his M.Sc. in Cyber Security and his B.Ed. in Computer Science Education at Machon Lev, where he is now working toward his Doctorate. Today, he not only teaches at Machon Lev, but he also works in the Prime Minister’s Office, where he is responsible for computer networks and security.
“I am eternally grateful to Kemach for facilitating the process which enabled me to maximize my potential while remaining true to Torah values.
I can still learn in Kollel every morning, because my qualifications enable me to support my family by working in the afternoons and teaching in the evenings. I could not have achieved this without Kemach’s transformative scholarship.”
