Meet Our All-Star Leadership
Coach Jared Lustman, Camp Kfir Director
Ever since arriving at Brauser Maimonides Academy (BMA) in the summer of 2014, Coach Jared Lustman has ignited the BMA Physical Education program with unbridled spirit and unparalleled devotion to the children he serves. During his relatively short time in the Hollywood community, Coach Jared has successfully instilled a new definition to the meaning of “winning.” He pushes his students to not only strive for the higher score, but, more importantly, to acquire an attitude of aiming high and not settling for anything less than giving one’s best. These lessons are imparted to his students and campers both on and off the court.
Over the past 7 years, Coach Jared has had the great privilege of being intimately involved in the creation, growth, and development of Los Angeles’s largest Jewish Day Camp. Coach Jared embodies the lesson that what children think of themselves often determines what they make of themselves. He is therefore committed to giving every child what they deserve – an indelible commitment to them realizing their potential and learning how to achieve it. We are excited to have Coach Jared as Camp Director for BMA’s Camp Kfir’s inaugural summer!

As Camp Assistant Director, Alisa will assist in the day-to-day activities on campus, as well as serve as the Camp Kfir parent liaison. Alisa’s warm and energetic personality will be a great addition to Camp this summer.
