When Joseph Sokol was a yeshiva student in Jerusalem, he was frustrated by how cramped his allotted dorm space was, so he rented an apartment nearby. He had a place to put his things, but a new problem presented itself. How could he pay rent in shekels when his income was in dollars?
That problem inspired Sokol to create OlehPay, a streamlined and affordable way to transfer US dollars to shekels.
