Sabbatical Team

Imi grew up at HABS Girls, and has been part of FZY ever since she was a participant on FZY Tour in 2014. We haven’t been able to get rid of her since; she has led Kesher camps, TY and the Tour Three 2018 Hippos.


Her infamous reputation in the movement surrounds ruthless political opinions and gold medals in the Maccabiah games (in netball obviously!).

Jonny grew up in South Manchester and went to North Cheshire and Altrincham Grammar. He began his FZY journey at Chaverot meetings in 2013, and his favourite FZY experiences were Year Course, Paint Over Prejudice and Kesher USA. When he's not doing something with FZY, you'll find him at Old Trafford or in nature - his favourite place in Israel is the Golan Heights. In December, he's returning to Israel, this time to make Aliyah!

Anna was born in Russia and made Aaliyah with her family when she was 2 years old. She grew up in Kfar Saba with her mum and two siblings, and did a year of voluntary service working with disadvantaged youth. Then she served in the Army as a Hebrew teacher for new soldiers in Mechve Alon base for 2 years. After studying Informal Education and Social Sciences at university, she has joined FZY as Shlicha for the central region.

​Ortal was born Tel-Aviv and grew up in Bnei-Brak. After graduating high school, she did national service for two years as an educator in the Herzl Center. She studied English literature and communications at university, followed by living in London for four months taking a fashion course at the London College of Fashion. After returning from London, she worked as a fashion specialist at Amazon. Before joining our team, Ortal travelled Australia for six months.

Manchester's shinshinit for 2019-20 is Adi.
