Tell me something brief about yourself. Likes, dislikes, hobbies etc.
One of my hobbies is that I enjoy learning to play guitar. I’ve been working on it for about the past 2 months. I also enjoy playing tennis, and taking long walks on the Quad.

What’s your major?
Media studies.

What are your future plans?
Work for a live television program, whether it’s a news show etc., and to ultimately become the producer.

What is your favorite memory of Israel?
That’s an easy one. Once, on Yom Ha’atzmaut [Israeli Independence Day], I spent the day in Sederot. Being able to experience the biggest holiday on the Israeli calendar together with heroic residents of Sederot was very inspiring.

Who has been there for you?
My family has always been there for me and always will be. Of course my friends, too, and Rabbi and Tzipah Wertheimer.

What is your favorite Jewish food?
I’m gonna go with anything with hummus on it.

Anything else you would like to add?
People should be aware of the tremendous efforts of Chabad to make everyone on campus feel at home even when we’re away from home.
