Ido Naor

Hi All, my name is Ido Schwartz- Naor. I’m so excited to join NRS this season. Here’s a bit about myself:
Born and raised in the hot and humid city of Haifa, Israel, then after spending 4.5 years in the Israeli army, I moved to Jerusalem (not so humid but still pretty hot) where I lived for about 10 years. 4 years ago I moved to Jersey City (and to the US in general) with my wife and two kids. I’m a teacher and a linguist. Got my first MA in bible studies and ancient semitic languages (yes, seriously), then a second MA in linguistics. I teach Hebrew language at a school in West Orange. Music has always been a huge part of my life, I play a bunch of instruments, and I sang in a few community choirs before (both in Israel and here).
We live on Pavonia ave. right by Hamilton park and our kids go to Cordero – Elinor goes to kindergarten and Shai is in Pre-K.
Other then that- When I don’t play music, I am happy to do anything outdoorsy – hiking and camping, I do all the cooking and baking in our house (and that’s a lot!), I love reading, love watching movies and riding my bike (not all at once).
I strongly believe that ‘Chubby Hubby’ is the best Ben & Jerry’s flavor.
