The 2015-2016 academic year has truly been an exciting one! W&L Hillel has been involved in many annual events like the Latke-Hamantash Debate and Avi Shabbat as well as many new programs like our Michloach Manot hand-out on Purim and speakers like Dr. Rachel Adato. We have had many new students become more involved in Hillel activities as well as many students who regularly attend express desire to be even more involved!

Our student board election featured a great mix of students. The new executive board consists of myself returning as President, Vice President Shlomo Honig ('18), and returning Treasurer Keith Denning ('18). The student board is comprised of Engagement Chair Alexandra Meilech ('18), Social Action Chair Hailey Glick ('19), Shabbat Chair Rachel Reibach ('18), Holiday Chair Isaac Rosenthal ('19), Speakers Chair Max Louman ('19), Communications Chair Bryce MacLeod Zaremby ('18), Israel Chair Zack Dubit ('17), editor-in-chief for the Star newsletter Jordan Goldstein ('18), and our VMI Liaison Cadet David Pody (VMI '17). I cannot express how excited I am for this upcoming year. Shlomo will offer a great new perspective to the executive board and with a new Hillel Director coming in this fall I think the consistency is just as important. We also have many rising sophomores on the student board, which is very exciting for the future of W&L Hillel. Hillel has had such an amazing impact on my life, there is no other way I can imagine spending my senior year than working with this amazing group of students.
