I am Rebekka Laskin, I'm senior at Stony Brook University. My major is Technological Systems Management with a specialization Electrical Engineering, and a minor in Digital Arts. I have been involved with Israel and Jewish life on campus since my freshman year. I am a David Project Intern and a former Hillel Treasure. I also have been on Onward Israel this past summer where I lived in Haifa, Israel for 2 months and worked at a startup! Please contact me if you are curious about anything Israel or Jewish related on campus!
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.
Hi! My name is Eilona Feder. I'm 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 at a different college until this year, Hillel and Mishelanu at Stony Brook have made me feel at home with every Shabbat dinner, event and program that I'm a part of. This year, as a Mishelanu intern, I hope to become more active at Hillel as time goes by. Please contact me if you are Israeli or an Israeli-American or would like to learn more about joining out Mishelanu meetings and events.
