How has your Jewish Studies degree impacted your career?

As part of my current position, I plan Israel and Holocaust educational & cultural programs for students and the community at large. In previous positions, I have taught a variety of Jewish Studies courses including some college-level and leadership classes.

Why did you decide to become a Jewish studies major?

I had a strong personal interest in expanding my knowledge of Judaism and planned on becoming a Jewish communal professional and felt it was important to have a strong Jewish background.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I loved my time at Emory, was active in Hillel and a sorority, worked as a youth group advisor at a local synagogue, and felt fully supported in my work, in and out of the classroom. I am still good friends with several of my Jewish Studies classmates.
