A first-generation Israeli, Mr. Levy grew up in the city of Rehovot. At the age of 18, he volunteered to the Israeli Air Force’s (IAF) rescue and medical evacuation unit. His academic background is in law (LLB) and political science (BA) and diplomacy and security (MA magna cum laude), both from Tel Aviv University.
He joined the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2002 and since then his diplomatic career has taken him to Yaoundé, Cameroon (2003-2005), Riga, Latvia (2005-2009), and Seoul, South Korea (2012-2016), where he served as Deputy Head of Mission. More recently, he served as Political Counselor at the UN and International Organizations, Human Rights Department.
Mr. Levy is married to Maya and a proud father of four children.
At Temple, we have a long tradition of honouring the memories of our loved ones on Yom Kippur with the printed Roll of Remembrance. This year, we continued this tradition in a new way, by creating a video that was incorporated into the Yizkor service online.
