Rendezvous with Hebrew U Student Ambassador Shai Deutsch:
Israeli, American, Global Citizen
Born in Jerusalem to American olim parents, growing up, Shai was sometimes torn between his identity as an Israeli citizen and an American ex-pat. Upon completing his military service, he went abroad and rediscovered his identity as a citizen of the world. Shai will share his personal story including his service in a reconnaissance unit in the IDF’s 188th brigade during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, his passion for Asia and ballroom dancing, and how being a student at Israel’s leading university has impacted his journey.
