Tomer Moked

Life Coach

So far, so good . . . Michigan winters and Detroit drivers haven’t bothered Tomer Moked, not a bit. “Driving in Michigan is a little like driving in Israel,” he says, “Everyone is in a rush, but they know where they want to go.” In his previous role as Assistant Director at Tamarack Camps, as many know him, Tomer was never one to rush into a decision. And he knew with certainty where he was going, moving from Israel to Michigan into the heart of the Detroit Jewish community. Leaving the house he owns in Beit Arye and the business he’s established in Tel Aviv - Tomer maintains that he’s found “a dream come true” in his new position as Federation’s Director of NEXTGen Detroit.
