Jewish Bearcat of the Week
Featuring Ruth Silver

What is your major?
My major is biology, on a pre-nursing track.

Why did you choose Binghamton University?
I chose Binghamton University for the amazing reputation it has, for both the Jewish community and the academics offered.

What is your favorite book?
My favorite book is the Orchard by David Hopen.

Where are you from?  Where did you go to high school?
I’m from Woodmere, NY, and I went to HAFTR high school. After that, I took a gap year at Tiferet in Israel. 

What do you love about Jewish life on campus?
One thing I love about Jewish life on campus is the community that Chabad creates. It is  such a nice feeling to be instantly connected to the Chabad at Binghamton.  

What is your favorite food?
My favorite food would probably be sushi :)

What is your favorite Chabad experience?
My favorite Chabad experience is definitely Shabbat dinner. Specifically, the first Shabbos that I was on campus. It was so relieving to have a warm Shabbat dinner and to meet new people. 

What's your favorite lockdown experience?
my favorite lockdown experience was Pesach 2020. My immediate family spent the holiday in our home and it was so special to spend that time together and enjoy the chag.

Rabbi Tzvi Freeman

The Baal Shem Tov taught that each of our lives is comprised of forty-two journeys, corresponding to the forty-two journeys of the children of Israel in the wilderness.

Some of those journeys have pleasant names. Others don’t sound so nice. Some even appear to backtrack. Yet, in truth, none are inherently bad.

It is only that you may have to dig deeper and yet deeper to find the purpose and the good within them.
