Simi was born in 1991 in Brooklyn, NY. In 1992, her parents (Rabbi Chaim and Chani Hanoka) were dispatched as Shluchim by The Lubavitcher Rebbe to Los Angeles, CA where they serviced the local Russian Jewish community.
In 1995, Simi moved with her family to Pasadena, CA where they established a vibrant Chabad house to service the local Jewish community.

Simi graduated from Bais Chana High School in June 2010. From there, she went on to spend a full year studying at the Jewish Theological Seminary in Milan, Italy.

Simi's life has always revolved around the Jewish community where she grew up. She has always dreamed of returning to assist in the Jewish development of the area.
