Speaker Profile Dr. Shimon Lerner

Shimon Lerner teaches physics at the JCT Lev Academic Center. Arriving in Israel from New Jersey with his family just before junior high, he went on to graduate from the Horev Yeshiva High School. He then entered the Atudah program of the IDF, studying for a degree in Electro-Optics at Machon Lev and afterwards serving as an officer.
