Julie Grossman (she/they)

Treasurer 

 

I am so excited to help build more meaningful Jewish experiences for people across campus and to get to know more people in our Hillel community!

Favorite Hillel memory...

is celebrating Sunshine Shabbat with the whole Hillel community!

and I really want to be a part of creating experiences that will do the same for other students. I feel so honored to be able to have the Shabbat Chair position because Hillel Shabbats truly are the highlight of my week, as they allow me the chance to destress, connect spiritually, and be surrounded by a community that brings me such joy and support. I can't wait to be able to make Shabbats even more meaningful and representative of what our community is hoping for!

Favorite Hillel memory.... when we had our first Saturday Shabbat. Not only were the services so meaningful, but all of us sitting around one table, enjoying our bagels and lox, and having time to just relax and be in the moment together was so beautiful and such a nice way to end the week!

Neilah Rovinsky (she/her)

Shabbat Co-Chair

 

I am so excited to be on this team because the UVM Hillel community has given so much to me throughout my college experience.... 

People are so kind and welcoming, even those who didn't know me. Shabbat helps me connect with my Jewish identity and community. I'm excited to help create that experience for others.
 

Favorite Hillel memory.... The Purim carnival! I had the best time being in the spiel, making cotton candy, and just being with my friends.

Delaney Kelleher (she/her)

Shabbat Co-chair 

 

Shabbat is what drew me and kept me coming back to Hillel. It always feels like a huge family dinner.

the leadership retreat because I got to meet so many amazing people, and it helped me feel more at home within Hillel’s community.

I'm excited to be able to make connections with various clubs and leaders on campus and help guide the conversation around Israel. I can't wait to get started with planning fun and meaningful programs alongside this amazing group of people!.
 

Favorite Hillel memory.... For Student Board Shabbat one week we had to make cookies for about 100 hundred people from scratch. We didn't have a hand mixer or anything so another student and I mixed all the batter in a soup pot by hand. It was so messy and took a long time but it was so much fun!!

Jen Zwerling (she/her)

I'm excited to be on the Team this year because I think my position gives me a lot of room to grow personally and professionally.
