Orel, the child of Ethiopian immigrants, joined the ITEC sponsored “Future Generation” tennis program for Ethiopian children at the age of six. Through ITEC, he learned essential life skills, including English language fluency. Orel had the opportunity to study in a training program for assistant coaches at the ITEC and as a result he had the chance to give back by working as an assistant coach and helped educate the next generation of children at the ITEC Beer Sheva. In 2021, Orel joined the IDF. He is currently serving in an elite commando unit and he belongs to the Paratroopers Brigade.
