Joe Wolkin

President
Hi Seawolves! I'm Joe, this year's Hillel president! Currently, I am a fifth year student (third year at Stony Brook) after earning my Associate's Degree in English at Queensborough Community College. I am majoring in journalism, with a focus on sports, along with a minor in English. From the day I came to Stony Brook, I knew Hillel would be my home away from home. Rabbi Joe and the rest of the staff were so kind and outgoing right off the bat, and I understood immediately just how important this group would be in my growth as not only a Jewish person, but as a college student. It is my goal to provide top quality Jewish life on campus, making people understand how beautiful Judaism is and the plentiful opportunities Hillel has to offer! I can't wait to meet even more new faces at Hillel, and it is my pleasure to serve this amazing community.

General Board Member
As an electrical engineering major (from Great Neck), I know how stressful stony brook can get. I’ve been in Hillel for one semester and this is my perspective: We’re a bunch of cool peeps who like chilling and having fun! I like long walks on the beach, puppies, talking about my feelings, and memes, so come through!
Aymon Faizi

Aymon Faizi

General Board Member
My name is Aymon Faizi. I am a junior majoring in Chemistry with a concentration in biology and a minor in applied mathematics. I wanted to join the Hillel board because I grew up in a Jewish neighborhood, as a child seeing this culture that is so vastly different from mine fascinated me. So I want to further my understanding of the Jewish culture and the beauty of it and help spread it around campus.
