Yehonatan (Yoni) Palmer grew up in Golders Green, London, moving to Ramat Bet Shemesh, Israel, in 1998. Today he lives with his wife and daughter on a moshav just outside Ramat Bet Shemesh. He grew up in a home steeped in communal involvement, with his father, z”l, serving as a gabbai and communal leader, while his mother, z”l, also played significant roles in women’s groups in the local kehillah. Yoni works in hi-tech as a technical writer, but outside work time is involved in communal activities, himself serving as a gabbai both on the moshav where he lives and during the time he lived in RBS. He is also a volunteer firefighter and took part in the Jerusalem area fire in August 2021.
