About SHALEM b'TEVA

He fell in love with camping as a kid and started
backpacking in the mountain wilderness of California at the age
of twelve. He has been on hundreds of camping and
backpacking trips and has lead numerous groups on multi day
excursions into some of the most beautiful places on earth. He
served in a combat unit in the IDF, has smicha from Rav Natan
Greenberg of Bat Ayin and a M.A. in Education.
