Tomer Rockman

Tomer joined the Kollel last year after moving to Vancouver from Toronto.

After working for a summer in a backcountry lodge in Northern BC, Tomer decided to make the move last year. For work he uses geo-spatial data and coding to make maps for tech companies. Outside of the (home) office he’s an avid hiker, getting out into the back country whenever possible. When the BC rain drives him indoors he spends time cooking or working on his van build (ask him about his upcoming trip).  He’s excited to meet other jews at the Kollel and help bring Vancouver’s Jews together!
