We have a panoply of programs to amaze and enlighten coming up all the time, and I can’t wait to show them to you. My majors are Neuroscience and Biology, with a minor in English. When not bustling about the Hillel Lounge, boning up for the MCAT, or boasting about my semester abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, I can be found mercilessly excavating pints of Ben and Jerry’s.

When I’m not discussing Jewish life or hanging out in the Hillel lounge, you can find me reading historical fiction, advocating for sustainability on campus, or watching the Vlogbrothers on youtube.

Hi, all! I’m Julia Sirota from Flemington, NJ, and I’m thrilled to be reviving my role as Shabbat and Festival Meals Coordinator! My primary responsibility is to make Shabbat dinner the event you excitedly await each week while pushing through research papers or problem sets. I love working to create Shabbat dinner experiences that fulfill our community’s diverse religious/cultural/spiritual/social/dietary needs, and I also love long discussions on the topic. When not thinking or talking about Hillel, I love organizing my colored pens, jamming out to show tunes, and making streamer art. Speaking of which, I also created and run Hillel’s Shabbat Squad – that group of cool cats who set up and decorate the function hall each week for Shabbat dinner, while listening to music, making friends, and having a blast!
Hi there! I’m Yael, and I’m thrilled to be serving as the education coordinator for Hillel this year!

I am a junior studying Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; Sociology; and Near Eastern and Judaic Studies. I am also a cofounder of the Jewish Feminist Association of Brandeis and an undergraduate department representative for WGS. When I’m not busy with Jewish feminism, I enjoy studying in the beit midrash, singing with my a cappella group, Company B, and re-watching The Office.
Hey world! I’m Lauren Grobois and I’m super excited to start off my second year at Brandeis as part of the Hillel board! I hail from New Rochelle, New York but spent last year at Ein Hanatziv, an Israeli seminary on a kibbutz in Northern Israel. I look forward to sharing my experiences from my year on the farm and excited to hear your unique stories too! This year I would love to create an inclusive environment for Israel programs because I know how hard it can be to have those conversations. I want to ensure that Hillel is a safe place where everyone can feel welcomed. I would love to get to know you, hear your input, or just hang out; so come stop by my office hours! Can’t wait for incredible year!
