My name is Ilan Yair Wimpfheimer and I was born and raised in Teaneck, New Jersey. I went to The Frisch School and I chose to go on a gap year to learn more about my Jewish origins and to step out of my comfort zone. I ultimately came across Aardvark Israel after hearing about it from various alumni who had great experiences. It was absolutely the right decision. Aardvark has provided me with the perfect blend of freedom whilst also providing fantastic trips and classes.
I am currently interning at Arba Finance and it has been a great time so far. After Gap Year I plan on attending University in Israel.
Fun fact: I have a pet pug!
