Expert Educator

David Mitchell

David Mitchell was born and bred in Northern California. He completed his double Bachelor's degree at the University of California, Berkeley, in History and Hebrew Texts, and a Master's Degree in Bible from the Hebrew University. He moved to Israel in 1975, where he lived on kibbutzim for seven years. He served in the IDF between 1980-1982, and served active reserve duty for the next 25 years.

David Mitchell was an instructor at the Alexander Muss High School in Israel from late 1984 until August 2004, when he took on the position as Dean of Israel Studies until his retirement in 2020. During that time, he also served as an Israel emissary for the Youth and Hechalutz Department of the Jewish Agency to the Pacific Southwest Region of USY.

David has spent years planning family and community trips to Israel, as well as guiding many of the groups.

David lives in Kfar Sava and is married to Ruti, a native Israeli. Their two daughters have both served two years of community and military service. One has a degree in Physical Education, and the other is a ceramicist and architect. One son was a commander in the Paratroopers, and is now a physical therapist. The other was a physical training officer in the army, is working on his master’s in Physical Education, is a personal trainer and trains in Krav Maga. All are married and raising wonderful families. The family enjoys spending as much time as possible wandering and exploring the paths of Israel.
