Shalom! My name is Andrew Hoffer and I’m this year’s Rosh Sports (Sports Director). I’m proud to say that I've also worked as Rosh Sports at Camp Young Judaea Sprout Lake! My camping experience began when I spent three amazing summers as a camper at Sprout and then spent four sessions as a camper at Tel Yehudah. My older brother came before me and now I have my little brother as a camper here at Tel Yehudah with me! Young Judaea camps have definitely shaped me as a person more than anything else I’ve done.
I have just completed my B.A. in Sports Management from Rutgers University where I also worked as Director of Intramural Referees in the Recreation Department. In the fall, I will be heading to Adelphi University for my Masters in Sports Management where I will be the Graduate Assistant for Intramurals.
I especially love running Maccabia because it’s a chance for every single teen here to offer their own special value to their team and let their personality shine. It’s not just that I love sports. What I love even more is the opportunity that sports offers to let people learn about working together with each other as a team.
