Zach moved to Israel in 2019 as a Zionist, wanting to join the army but was injured before his draft. Originally from New Jersey, he decided to stay in Israel as he recovered. Now having lived here for 5 years, he runs his Personal Training Business in Jerusalem, where he had the privilege of meeting David Newman.
“On October 7th, I was struck. All my friends and family were called to base, except me, who could only sit reading the news, learning of that horrific morning and the atrocities. I met David months before, and it was obvious why everyone loved him, and why he loved everyone: he was amazing. Only an amazing person could inspire such amazing acts. When I heard my friends began doing something, I asked them what they needed, because I needed do something to help.”
