    Becca Levin

    Israel Chair

    Hi! My name is Becca Levin and I am so excited to be the new Israel cohort chair! I am a sophomore in LSA and hail from the lovely city of Cleveland, Ohio. I spent a year in Israel with Nativ, where I lived in Jerusalem and in the Negev. Needless to say, I love all things Israel! I am so appreciative of the diverse support for Israel here at U of M and can’t wait to work with everyone to strengthen that relationship. Please come to me with ideas and just to chat; I’m always around!

    Jonathan Friedman

    Outreach Chair

    My name is Jonathan Friedman and I am Hillel’s Outreach Cohort Chair this year! I’m from Atlanta, GA, and this year I’d really like to bring some good old Southern Hospitality to Hillel. Basically, if you know of any prospective students who are looking for a place to stay, contact me, and I’ll get them the hook up. Outside of that I’m just a fun loving guy, who enjoys among other things, Dragon Ball Z, Israel, and singing too loudly in the shower.  I’m pretending to enjoy coffee these days, so I’d be happy to partake in that with you, although I’m honestly more inclined to meet up at Pinball Petes.

    With love,

    Jonathan “Jjfreshhh” Friedman

    Jake Berman

    Religious Life Chair

    Hi, I’m Jake Berman, your new Religious Life Chair. I am a sophomore from New Jersey studying business. I got involved with Hillel’s Programming Board because Hillel has basically become a second home for me. This year can be really special and I look forward to working with different students and Hillel groups. If anyone has any ideas they think should be implemented at Hillel, please come and tell me. I want as much student input as possible. Also, discussing possible initiatives is a great way to get Hillel to pay for coffee. Anyway, feel free to email me any time.
