Jewish Bearcat of the Week
Featuring Jacob Aaronson

What is your major, and why did you decide to pursue this degree?
I am majoring in Computer Engineering because I enjoy learning about how computers work at a fundamental level. I also enjoy computer programming because I'm a little bit of a masochist.

Why did you choose Binghamton University?
I chose Binghamton University because it's a state school with a great reputation and an outstanding Jewish community.

What is your favorite book? Why?
My favorite book is Prisoner's Dilemma because it combines three of my favorite genres: biography, history, and math. It's very well written, and it's like getting three different books in one: it's about John von Neumann, the Cold War, and the development of game theory.

Where are you from?  Where did you go to high school?
I'm from New Rochelle, NY and I went to SAR High School.

What do you love about Jewish life on campus?
I love that there are so many different events happening all the time.

Do you have any siblings?
I have an older brother and a younger sister.

What is your favorite Jewish food? 
Latkes are my favorite Jewish food. Potatoes in general are really neat.

What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is macaroni and cheese.

If you were a breakfast cereal, which one would you be and why?
I'd probably be one of those off-brand cereals like "Toasty O's" or "Crispy Rice."

What is your favorite Chabad experience?
Winning Jewpardy over Zoom with the Stud Muffins team.

Torah Portion: Acharei-Kedoshim
Rabbi Tzvi Freeman

We don’t learn Torah to gain knowledge—not even divine knowledge. At the time you are learning Torah, your mind itself is divine.

Your mind cognates in divine modalities. Your soul twirls and rises in a divine dance. As you wrestle with divine words, pathways and wisdom, you merge with them, so that your entire being becomes Torah.

We learn Torah because it is a mitzvah—the mitzvah of merging your mind with the mind of G‑d.
