About The Trip


iceisrael July 10, 2014

Well, Hello There Everyone!

My name is Josh Munk, which I’m assuming you already know because it’s in bold in the title of this post.

A bit about me… hmm… well, I live in Miami Beach, FL, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, where we are on vacation all day!  Ok… maybe not all day, but it’s nice to have warm weather and palm trees :-)… Here in Miami Beach (if you’re from South Florida, you know there’s a BIG difference between Miami Beach and Miami…), I’m in an amazing yeshiva, studying to be a Rabbi, and I also teach middle and high school.  I love jet skiing and Torah, but I don’t bring my Gemarrah with me when I jet ski, because technically, that’s “texting” while driving 😉 … fun fact – the water has speed limits, too, and you can get a speeding ticket on a jet ski or boat!  I also love horseback riding (even though I’ve only been twice), boating, eating coconuts that fall off the trees here (yes, that actually happens), and – oh yeah, Torah!

This coming year will be my 5th year with NCSY, and I’ve been with the New England region (Go Stamford Chapter!), where I’m originally from, and now the West Coast region!  So, GO WEST COAST GO WEST COAST GO!!

I’m SUPER excited for ICE Israel 2014, which should be obvious to you, because I bolded the word “super” and put it in all caps.  I must admit, I’m a bit nervous, because I’ve never been on ICE Israel 2014 before, but then again, neither have you guys, so we’re all in the same boat 😉  (for those of you who didn’t get that joke, wait for it… no?  ok, if necessary, reread the sentence carefully a few times…)

Given that this is NCSY, I believe a large “woo” is necessary, perhaps with preceding words along the lines of “are you ready,” or some variation of the like, so here we go:

ARE. YOU. READY?????  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, in all serious guys, I’m really, absolutely, totally, and (look in the dictionary and find another big word that means “really” and add it here) EXCITED to meet you all and work with this AWESOME staff that Hal and Yael put together to help make this summer your… wait for it…

BEST. SUMMER. EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
