Jonathan  Kazakov

Jonathan Kazakov

David Project Intern
Hello all! My name is Jonathan Kazakov. I am a sophomore majoring in Applied Mathematics and Statistics. I am from Forest Hills, New York. The reason why I got involved in Hillel is because I grew up in a big Jewish neighborhood and have always been involved in Jewish life. When I came to Stony Brook, Hillel opened their arms and took me in as if I was a part of their family which is something that I cherish and love. I am a current David Project Intern as well as a Israel Liaison for Hillel and I hope to continue my experiences and memories with Hillel coming forward.

StandWithUs Intern

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.

Eilona  Feder

Eilona Feder

Mishelanu Intern

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.
