(This blog post should be read while listening to Just Can’t Get Enough)

When asked about her Livnot experience, the first thing that comes to mind is blisters and bruises, and nail polish does not survive a single day. Yet despite the battle wounds from hiking and volunteering, Simone Meron finds herself returning time and time again. Having done her first program 2 years ago, she has come back as often as possible for another dose of Livnot. She just can’t get enough!

Simone in Livnot kitchenSimone’s parents met while on a Livnot program together in the 80’s, so you could say she’s been part of the Livnot family since birth. This Denmark native spent part of her childhood in Israel, and attended school in London for Fashion Communication. Growing up in a modern Orthodox household, Simone found herself drawn to Livnot’s commitment to helping Jewish young adults find their connection to Judaism.

After just a one week program, she became involved on her campus creating Jewish Society (JSoc) events for Jewish university students. Through this initiative, Simone helped foster a growing Jewish community among university students while simultaneously combating rising antisemitism in London. Livnot’s strong sense of community, regardless of background or level of observance, was a strong influence and she felt driven to share her experience with the greater Jewish community.

Since that first taste of Livnot, Simone has returned for a recharging Tzfat Shabbat and a two month stint as an intern. Above the pain from the blisters and bruises, she feels there is a greater feeling of love, happiness, and self of being that makes it all worth it. Especially on the campus, a renovated ancient Tzfat dwelling, the atmosphere created by amazing people prepared to welcome all the new chevre with caring affection is infectious. Each day she tries to be a good person, showing genuine interest, and greeting each new situation a smile.
