  • Hi Everyone,
    My name is Aaron Cahen and I am a Junior from San Francisco, California. I am very excited to serve as your Dialogue and Identity Cohort Chair for the upcoming year! I love working with new people and hearing their stories so being able to work with this cohort is very exciting! Throughout this term I want to help the groups in my cohort, as well as the greater Hillel, find new ways to work with each other and work with people of different backgrounds. Additionally, I am looking forward to helping our Hillel community connect with other cultural groups through conversations and fun events! Please feel free to come up to me if you have any ideas or would just like to chat!

  • Hello,

    I’m Josh, am a sophomore in LSA, and am the Israel Cohort Chair. Speaking of Israel, I spent my gap year in Israel on the Nativ College Leadership Program. In my spare time, I enjoy a heated game of Ping-Pong, a competitive basketball game, or a conversation about Israel. This year, I’m really looking forward to getting know everybody within the Israel community and can’t wait for the amazing speakers, events, and programs that are in store. Stay tuned!

  • My name is Suzy Weiss, and I am so excited to serve as the incoming Culture Cohort Chair of Hillel, or as I like to say the Minister of Fine Arts and Leisure with a Judaic Persuasion.
    I am a Sophomore from Pittsburgh majoring in both Business and Art History. On campus I am involved with TAMID, The Every Three Weekly, The David Project, and The Hillel Players where I serve as Co-President. My vision is for Hillel to become a hub of self-expression and exploration through the arts, or at least an institution through which your creative voice is heard, and your snacks heavily subsidized.
    I look forward to helping Kol Hakavod, HARTS, COTH, Shulchan Ivrit, The Hillel Players, and OY put on some meaningful and fun programs this coming year

    Hi! My name is Sarah Parkes from New York, and I am majoring in Psychology. I am so excited to be this year’s Social Action Cohort Chair. My passion for social action was established within my Jewish community at home through countless Mitzvah Days, Jewish camping experiences, and USY. When I came to Michigan I was glad to find other students that were just as passionate about social action as I am. As Social Action Chair, I’m looking forward to working with Michigan’s Jewish students to make our campus community a more active and caring place not only through community service, but also through education and training of social injustices. By collaborating with Hillel staff and student leaders, I hope to bring community service and social action to the forefront of our community so we can effectively bring positive changes to our surrounding communities. Feel free to introduce yourself to me if you have any ideas for the cohort, or even if you don’t – I love going on coffee dates!

  • Hey Hillel! My name is Adam Horn and I am junior studying biology. I hail from Philadelphia, Pa and cannot wait to be your next Health and Environment cohort chair! I enjoy singing in the men’s glee club, running, hiking, eating delicious food, and want to hear a good joke if you have one. Since I first visited Hillel as a freshman with my Markley hallmates, I have made lasting friendships and embraced Hillel’s welcoming community. Please feel free to let me know of events or initiatives you want to see happen, just stop me around campus or send me a message. I hope to meet many of you and show you what amazing things are happening within the cohort!

  • Hi! My name’s Inbar and I could not be more excited to be serving as your Outreach Cohort Chair for the upcoming term! A little about me- I’m Israeli but was actually born in Kentucky, I’m a junior studying Cognitive Science and Psychology with a minor in business, and you can probably always find me with a smile on my face if there’s either a baby animal or a warm batch of chocolate chip cookies around. I can’t wait to see all the amazing programs that you all create and the extraordinary people that come through our doors! I’m probably most excited for coffee dates because, let’s be real, the only thing I love more than coffee is getting to talk to all of you!
