Anna Kanterovich - Committee Head

When I was 15, I was caught burning notebooks in the school restrooms.The principal called me a pyromaniac. “Burner”, I corrected him; “it's called a Burner”.


I have been burning since 2014 (4 times in the US, and countless times in Israel).


I’ve been setting up camp with unbelievably amazing partners since 2014. The people Midburn has brought my way have been the best gift one can ask for.


I’ve been a part of the organization since 2017 (actually since the very beginning, but it’s taken me a bit of time to get over my fear of organized establishment).


I have been part of the committee since 2018 (when I was told it’s a mere 3-hours/week commitment. Marcus, I WILL get revenge!).


Head of the committee since 2019 (I was looking around while everyone was looking at me).


Experienced one field crisis and one world pandemic.


I carry a cross and a silver bullet in my pocket; Just in case the zombie apocalypse breaks out suddenly.


2021 is absolutely going to be a year of growth and energy!


Hope everyone is ready to experience Midburn a bit like first timers again.



Eran Fox


A bit about my burn history:


Been burning since 2016!


Participated in the building of the Komorabi in 2017. Once it was up and standing, I literally stood in front of it and wept.


If you haven't seen the Komorabi burn you haven't seen a burn!


Steering committee member since 2019.


Why am I here?

I’m here for the change

I’m here fo the people

I’m here for the culture

I’m here to take Midburn and its culture to new heights in Israeli society.



Ronen Bendeck


Who am I?

an attorney, a personal and professional mentor & a lecturer at IDC.


A bit about my burn history:

I was first exposed to the burning man culture in 2016 and have been hooked ever since. Midburn 2016 literally changed my life!


Way back in 2016, I volunteered in the parking department and in subsequent years I led the department and took on a few other leading roles.


In 2018 and 2018 I participated in Burning Man and the burning man culture has since been an innate part of my life!


So why am I on the committee?

I joined to help steer the main event and promote the burn community and culture in general, here in Israel.







Tcheeya Ben Zur


Why am I on the committee?


Because I have a vision: I strive to continue to create impact and space for community and inclusion based on the 10 burning man principles. I dream that together we’ll make this event happen and through it strengthen our community in big ways.


I feel that we’ve created a subculture that has really left its mark on Israeli society.

We’ve created a supportive social network that continually strengthens the community and its impact and I feel lucky and blessed to partake and carry on this impact.







Dov Shemesh



Who am I?

I am a 72 year old engineer, retired yoga instructor and entrepreneur in the world of recreational facilities and trampoline parks.


A bit about my burn history:


I created the ‘tribal elders’ camp in 2014 and have been participating since.

I’ve participated in burning man both in the US and in Australia.

I am a member in the midair strategic department!


So why am I on the committee?


I’m here to bring old traditions back to life.

I’m here to share my professional and entrepreneurial experience to help the organization pull out of its financial rut.
