Davida Ander

Davida Ander moved to Vancouver from Toronto one year ago. 

To be a proper Vancouverite, Davida has leaned into fully embracing the West Coast vibes and activities – including hiking (#herefortheview), swimming (though not outdoors in the winter), wearing mostly lululemon with Blundstones and criticizing the ever-grey skies (surely it must be better than Toronto cold/snow!).

Davida is very grateful to have found a Jewish home within the Kollel community and looks forward to forming more friendships with Kollel-lites next year!
