I am from Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania (outside Philadelphia) and can’t believe I am already a senior. I am a double major in Anthropology and HSSP (Health: Science, Society, and Policy) and plan on obtaining a Certified Nurse Midwifery degree after Brandeis. In addition to being on Hillel Board for the second time, I am also a member of BEMCo (Brandeis’ EMT service), working on my senior thesis, and applying to graduate school. I enjoy having random dance parties with my friends, reading midwifery books, stress baking, listening to Ingrid Michaelson and The Airborne Toxic Event, and have a small addiction to tumblr. If you are a first year, Welcome to Brandeis and if you are an upperclassman, Welcome Back; we are so happy you’re here!
I am so excited to return to Hillel Board for my fourth semester as Finance Coordinator (and my fifth semester on Hillel Board)! I oversee the Hillel Student Allocations Process; I work diligently to ensure a fair, organized, well publicized, transparent, and inclusive system that efficiently invests in events, programs, and initiatives in order to strengthen Jewish life at Brandeis. I am a junior, majoring in Psychology, and double minoring in Legal Studies as well as Social Justice & Social Policy. I am a proud and opinionated New Yorker from Little Neck, Queens! I love reading the New York Times & Time Magazine, playing intramural sports, hanging out with my friends, and watching a ridiculous amount of television. I absolutely love Hillel at Brandeis, and I hope you do/will too!
I am a senior from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida majoring in Linguistics. After graduation, I hope to work for a couple years and then get a Master’s in Public Administration and go into nonprofit management. You will most likely find me either singing with Manginah around campus, dancing with friends, or hanging out in the Hillel Lounge. If you are a First Year, then welcome to Brandeis and please come up and introduce yourself to me! If you’re an Upperclassman, welcome back!! I’m so excited to see you all and be on your Hillel Board!
I’m a junior majoring in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies and minoring in Women’s and Gender Studies. I like food – both eating and cooking (in that order) reading YA and fantasy, and the TV show Castle. I absolutely LOVE shmoozing about fandom, food, feminism, and especially Judaism. If you like any of those things then I really want to meet you and hear your opinions about Judaism, life, the universe, and everything so please come say hi.
I’m a sophomore from Long Island. I can generally be found finding new geeky fandoms, playing Dungeons and Dragons, overanalyzing Harry Potter, making bad puns, and pacing. I enjoy meeting new people, so please come up to me and say hello! Welcome to Brandeis!
I am a Junior majoring in Psychology and minoring in Business. As the Shabbat and Festival Meals, I work to make sure that Hillel dinners are optimal experiences for those looking for Jewish life on campus. This past summer, I spent six weeks living in Hadar, a socially distressed neighborhood in Haifa, Israel, helping teach English to youth ages 10-18. I enjoy playing Ultimate Frisbee and also doing tech work for the Undergraduate Theater Collective. Other hobbies include swimming and running, as well as cleaning up other people’s messes. I hope you will experience Hillel’s Shabbat Dinner and enjoy the company of community members here at Brandeis.
I am a senior and just returned from studying for 7 months in Israel and am always eager to share that incredible experience. As a psychology major, I was lucky to have the opportunity to do research in a twin studies lab at Hebrew University during the school year and intern at the Israel Center for the Treatment of Psychotrauma over the summer. I am a classical/operatically trained vocalist, I play tennis and would love to find a tennis partner, and love meeting and getting to know different kinds of people. I cannot wait to get to know everyone!
I hail from the wonderful state of New Jersey and have just begun my sophomore year at Brandeis University. I intend to double major in Computer Science and Near Eastern and Judaic Studies and plan on either going to rabbinical school or making Aliyah after I graduate. I can be found all over school playing Ultimate Frisbee, teaching swing dance, or just generally enjoying our beautiful campus. My favorite activities include hanging out with friends, playing any sport, meeting new people, wearing ridiculous clothing, and reading. I’m so looking forward to getting to know every one of you this year.
As the ruler of Hillel Tzedek I coordinate the community service that goes on in Hillel. I’m from Teaneck, NJ. I like when people bake me things. My favorite slurpee flavor is blue raspberry. If you haven’t met me yet, come and say hi. See you soon!
Hello! I’m Maddie. Two years ago, I was also the Social Events and Culture Coordinator. Currently, I’m a senior (EEK!) and a pre-med Bio major, with HSSP/East Asian Studies minors. I love crafts, drinking tea, and interfaith dialogue with Brandeis Interfaith Group. I am also lucky enough to be a Community Advisor in East. I can usually be found somewhere near Hillel lounge, so come say hi!
I hail from Ottawa, Ontario, and I’m so excited to be joining Hillel Board as one of the two First Year Representatives! I’m so excited to get to know everyone and have a great time with my fellow first years and the rest of campus. I love getting lost in music and I love the outdoors. I tend to randomly break out into song and I’ve been known to dance to myself. I’m interested in studying many things including Economics, Politics, and Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, and I’m very excited to be starting my Brandeis Career. Most of all I love socializing and making new friends, so please come up to me and say hello!
I’m a first year student from Seattle, Washington, and am super excited both to be here at Brandeis and on Hillel board! I just returned from a year in Israel on the Nativ program, and am missing the ice cream already. I have no idea what I want to major in (but I’m taking suggestions!). I love ice breakers, cuddling, Disney princesses, and making new friends. I’m really excited to get to know you all, especially all you first years!
