The Chicago Fire announced Thursday that they are loaning forward Orr Barouch to Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv F.C. Barouch, 20, was born in Haifa, Israel and has represented the country on the U-21 national team five times.

"This loan provides Orr with an opportunity to earn consistent playing time,” said Fire Head Coach Frank Klopas. “Orr was interested in playing in Israel and Bnei Yehuda was a good fit. We look forward to monitoring Orr’s progress and development while he is playing in Israel.”
