Greetings from Israel: 30 seconds with Cody Gelvar
University: Recent graduate of West Virginia University with a degree in history and a minor in communications and political science.
Internship: I work on the New Media Management team at OneDay Social Volunteering, a nonprofit that presents young professionals the opportunity to volunteer around Israel.
Since arriving in Tel Aviv, my favorite thing to do is: enjoy the beach, since every day is a beach day! I also enjoy exploring the city to find the best cuisine.
My favorite restaurant in Israel is: a small falafel shop behind Shuk HaCarmel (Carmel Market) where I’ve befriended the owner. After two and a half weeks, I’m officially a regular customer.
If my parents were here: I’d show them Tel Aviv’s vibrant culture, whether it’s Israeli nightlife or just enjoying Shabbat in a park.
Baltimore Onward Israel is: amazing! I’m enjoying everyone’s company, both one-on-one and in a large group.
