Jewish Bearcat of the Week
What is your major, and why did you decide to pursue this degree?
I’m a psychology major because I am fascinated by the human mind and how and why we function. I’m planning on going into Occupational Therapy to help those who need with their everyday life functions.

Why did you choose Binghamton University?
I chose Binghamton because of the unmatchable Jewish community that exists here, and its amazing academics.

Where are you from?  Where did you go to high school?
I am from New Rochelle, NY and went to Ramaz.

What is your favorite food/Jewish food?
My favorite Jewish food is definitely deli roll, especially Rivki’s deli roll, and my favorite food is dark meat chicken, specifically the thigh piece.
Do you have any siblings?
I have 2 siblings, my sister Hayley who will be coming to Bing next year (!!) and my brother Jesse who is in SAR high school.
What is your favorite Chabad experience?
My favorite Chabad experience is mega challah bake, there’s nothing better than eccentric challah flavors!

My favorite book is anything by Jodi Picoult.
What is your favorite Jewish childhood memory?
My favorite Jewish childhood memory is waking up on Shabbat mornings and eating chulent for breakfast with my Saba.
What's your favorite lockdown experience?
My favorite lockdown experience was taking walks all around my neighborhood with my family and friends.

What do you love about Jewish life on campus?
What I love about Jewish life on campus is the sheer number of Jews there are here, and that the University publicly recognizes and respects that.

It is the greatest of struggles, but one who makes peace between his ego and his mission in life, he can make peace between the world and its purpose of creation.

Between woman and man.

Between earth and heaven.
