David Jerome ('96-'98)

ושבו בנים לגבולם

David & Nitza Jerome

David, originally from Detroit, Michigan, spent two years learning at Reishit, later attending Yeshiva University. After graduating in 2000 with a B.A. in Economics, David, together with business partner and fellow Reishit alumn Yo(ni) Mann worked in Manhattan as a commercial real estate broker.  

Nitza (nee' Miller) and David were married in December 2003, and moved to Nitza's home town of Teaneck, New Jersey.

In December of 2006, the Jerome's gave up a stable carreer and the comforts of their "Teaneck lifestyle" to follow their dreams and make Aliyah. The Jerome's settled in Beit Shemesh- moving just around the corner from Reishit, and "absolutely love it" in Eretz Yisrael. David has reestablished himself as a commercial real estate broker, commuting to Tel Aviv, while Nitza has her hands full with their two sons Izzy (4) and Eyal (2.5), and is actively involved in the community. Committed to growth and chessed, the Jerome's are respected by their friends and neighbors for their dedication and easy going nature.   

David is a familiar face around Yeshiva, spending Yamim Nora'im with us, and visiting on Shabbatot and Chagim. We are proud of their accomplishments, and look forward to continuing to grow and share smachot together!

"I love davening with the Reishit guys; the environement around Yeshiva is awesome...it is such a special zechut to live near the Yeshiva, see my Rabbeim and to be able to bring our sons to the Reishit Beis Medrash..."
