Shalom, My name is Neil and this year I am a sophomore. I represent Stony Brook University for StandWithUs which is a very popular and large Pro-Israel education and advocacy group. My job is to bring events to campus that are both fun and educational when it comes to Israel and Zionism. I speak fluent Hebrew (half-Israeli) and I love being Jewish. Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people, and defending it is a duty for me.
Hello! I'm Miki, a Junior double majoring in Computer Science and Applied Math. I moved to Hauppauge, NY about 11 years ago from Israel. As soon as I started studying at Stony Brook, I wanted to get involved with some sort of Israeli organization, and I was lucky enough to meet the Israel Fellow during one of my first days on campus. He made me feel very welcome, and asked if I wanted to join Mishelanu, the Israeli-American group on campus. I agreed, of course, and one thing lead to another, and I became a Mishelanu Intern. As an intern, I hope to increase Mishelanu's reach on campus, and introduce Israeli culture to as many people as possible. I'm working together with Eilona, the other Mishelanu Intern, to come up with exciting ideas for this year. If you would like to learn more about Israeli culture, speak a bit of Hebrew, or if you have any suggestions/ideas, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Hey! My name is Eilona Feder. I am a junior majoring in biochemistry. I moved to Setauket, NY almost 3 years ago from Tel Aviv, Israel. From the moment I moved, I was looking for my fellow jews and Israelis in order to feel some connection to Israel. Even though I was in a different college until this year, Hillel and Mishelanu at Stony Brook made me feel like home with every Shabbat dinner, event or program that I was a part of. This year, as a Mishelanu intern, I hope to become more active at Hillel as the time goes by. Please contact me if you are an Israeli or an Israeli-American or anyone who would like to join our Mishelanu Israeli meetings and events.
