Joe Woolf

Joe grew up in Totteridge and went to JFS, where he was Deputy Head Boy. He first got involved in FZY when he went on FZY Israel Tour in 2012. He’s been here ever since, graduating our amazing Hadracha course and recently being a madrich on FZY Israel Tour Two 2016 and Tour Six 2017. His love for the movement has continued to grow and now he is the Mazkir (National Director)!

Outside of work, Joe’s interests are the mighty West Ham United, and Judaean history in the Roman Period.
