Rebecca  Oestreicher

Rebecca Oestreicher

Soroff Fellow

My name is Rebecca Oestreicher and I am a junior studying political science with a concentration in comparative politics and international relations. I’m from Connecticut and I love reading books and petting dogs. This past summer I participated in the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Government Advocacy Internship Program so please feel free to ask me any questions about my amazing experience there! This also really helped me understand how anti-Zionism and its subsequent propaganda spreads around college campuses. This year, I am the Soroff Israel Fellow and I’m really looking forward to helping to combat this through education and engagement.

Eilona Feder

Mishelanu Intern

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.
