Ionas Con

I was born 1985 in Jitomir, Ukraine but moved Soroca, Moldova when I was young. After high school I moved to Chisinau to study and immediately became interested in Jewish organizations, such as Hillel. I went on Taglit trip in 2007 and it was amazing experience. After my bachelor degree from Moldova State University, I worked as credit analyst in a commercial bank. While working I continued my studies and obtained a Master Degree in 2008. In 2012 I moved to the US to continue my education at ORT Zarem Golde Technical Institute for a CPA degree. In the fall of 2013 I came to the Moishe House Chicago RSJ and it quickly became a big part of my life. As a resident I hope to bring the same feeling to others who stop by our House.
