About UConn Hillel





Board of Directors

  • Student Leadership



Kylie Schechtman,

The Hillel community has become a home away from home for me with countless friends and staff to provide support, guidance, and a "family" at UConn. I find comfort knowing that Hillel is a place I can be myself and enjoy time with my friends. By joining the student board I hope to provide other students the same wonderful experiences I have had and give back to the community.

Vice President

Brandon Milich,

After just a short time in the Hillel community, I realized how significantly and positively Hillel has affected me and my college experience. It showed me the necessity of a strong Jewish community on a college campus. This inspired me to become more involved so that other first year students could have as positive of an experience as myself.

VP Finance

VP Programming

I wanted to run for Board because I care about the events at Hillel and the people who they are for. I wanted to pick the position that would let me do the most for the community and I thought this would be the best.

VP First Year Students of Hillel (FYSH)

Harrison Dent,

Hillel has provided a place for me to feel at home and meet all of my closest friends. I decided to join the Uconn Hillel Board because I want to provide as many students as possible with the opportunity to have such an incredible experience like I have had.

VP Jews in Greek Life (JIGL)

Gianna Michaelson,

I am so happy I decided to get in involved with Hillel; it was through Hillel that I found life-long friends who share my interests. As VP JIGL, I hope to further connect Hillel to the greater UConn community and get more students in Greek Life involved so that they can share this amazing community with me.

VP Marketing

Being the daughter of two Israeli parents, I’ve always had a strong sense of Jewish identity. Coming into college last semester I knew I wanted to get involved at Hillel. This being said, as a freshman the transition into college was really difficult. Knowing that I had the Hillel community to lean on made this transition that much easier. Which is why I decided to run for VP of marketing on the board, to ensure that everyone can find a home here at Hillel like I have.

VP Shabbat and Holidays

Joni Weintraub,

Hillel has been a second home to me during my time at UConn and I figured the best way to give back was to run for board! Having grown up in an observant Conservative household, Shabbat and the other Jewish holidays are a central part of my life and something I’m really really passionate about.

VP Jewish Education

In the time I have been at Hillel I have seen what a remarkably warm and comforting place it is. I have also seen the great communal gathering place it can be and have witnessed the wonderful exchanges of ideas that take place under Hillel's roof. I joined Hillel student board to help play a bigger role in this outstanding community and in my role as VP of Jewish Education it is my hope that I will create meaningful Jewish experiences for everyone.

VP Tzedek

Dean Segal,

Coming from Los Angeles, Hillel was a place that welcomed me and introduced me to some of my best friends. I wanted to better the Hillel community and provide more community service events, as well as engage with more students!

Huskies for Israel Liaison

Hillel has been a major part of my UConn experience because it provides a community to make a large school smaller. I am so glad that I found Hillel and I am glad I am able to give back to a place that has given me so much!
