He attended elementary school and the Gymnasia high school in Rishon L’Zion, then was accepted to the Air

class.’ Doron also studied psychotherapy.
Doron was in his early 20s, he implemented a pet rescue operation for dogs and
cats.By the time he reached 30, he volunteered for WIZO (Women’s
International Zionist Organization) in Holon, Israel, facilitating a support
group for terminally ill patients, widows/widowers, parents of “at risk” teens
with addiction issues, and holocaust survivors. Over his three years of
volunteering, this group he counseled fluctuated from between 20 to 40
participants. His talks were on “How to
Bring Happiness into Your Life” – helping people who have no hope believe in
themselves and miracles. Eventually, Doron was cajoled to speaking about body
language, channeling information, “vibrating energy”.

gifts for granted. His familial heritage dates back to Morocco (Marrakech) on
his father’s side, and Tunisia on his mother’s.

unwavering support and wishes him continued success in all his lofty endeavors.
May he go from strength to strength in his remarkable life saving efforts.
