Gilad Winestate was born in Rehovot, Israel, and lived there his entire life. He has a twin brother and a sister, and they are all close. They like to travel together in Israel and around the world. His majors in school are Talmud, Bible, Judaism, and Computer Science. In his free time, Gilad likes to run, meet with friends, and just stay at home and do nothing. Gilad is taking part in the youth movement “Bnei Akiva”. He has been the counselor for 6th and 7th graders, and this year he oversees the logistics team. Gilad is very excited to come and be a Shinshin in Baltimore’s community and can’t wait to get to know everyone, share his Israeli identity and strengthen the connection between Baltimore and Israel.
