Tamir, may your story inspire our young so they can see that they can enjoy life and still be a Torah observant. This is what enjoying life is about. Shalom

Great Story!!

As a kid, he was the coolest frum Jew. Now, he's a great role model. A great lesson of living in reality while still fulfilling your dreams. Really something we can all learn from. Keep up the good work and go CHaifa Cheet!!!
