Cem Kaspi

I am a recent graduate from UBC and a young professional in the engineering field. I was raised in Istanbul, Turkey and came to Vancouver 6 years ago. I love skiing at the local mountains during winter and enjoying the beaches on summer. I also love playing and talking about sports, especially soccer. 
I have felt an increasing sense of Jewish belonging over the years, and therefore am very excited to be a part of the Kollel community. I am looking forward to make more connections in the upcoming year!
