About UConn Hillel





Board of Directors

  • Student Leadership



Hillel has defined my time here at UConn and made my college experience amazing. It has given me the best of friends, great leadership opportunities, and a chance to strengthen my relationship with Judaism. I am so grateful to be able to serve the community as president and ensure all other Jewish students on campus get to feel this type of connection and support.

Vice President

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!

VP Finance

My name is Matan Doron and I am currently HIllel's CFO. I feel extremely privileged to have been elected to this position, and I am very excited ti serve the Hillel community. Being part of the Jewish community has always been a big part of my life and continuing that participation at UConn only felt natural. For me, Hillel is home, and I cannot wait to welcome you to our Hillel.

VP Programming

I love being at Hillel because it is where I have met my best friends. I am so grateful that I have such an unbelievably supportive, welcoming, and compassionate community in a building that has become more than a second home to me. So I joined board to serve and strengthen the community that means so much to me but also to strengthen the community that means so much to my friends.

VP of External Relations

Ross Bernstein,

When I arrived on campus my freshman year, Hillel was one of the first organizations I joined. I was immediately welcomed into an environment filled with students with a similar background. I am ecstatic to be Hillel’s VP of External Relations so that I could give back to my community and extend that open hand to the rest of the UConn campus.

VP Marketing

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!

VP Shabbat and Holidays

Michael Berelowitz,

Hi! I am a UConn Freshman studying statistics. I was very involved in USY, a conservative Jewish youth group, and I immediately became active in Hillel when I came to UConn to continue my Jewish involvement into college. I am excited to serve as the VP of Shabbat and Hoidays for the next year and can't wait to help strengthen the Hillel community.

VP Jewish Education

Hi! I am so excited to be on Hillel's board as VP of Jewish Education for the upcoming year! Before college, I was very involved in everything Jewish at home: Jewish Day School, Hebrew school, synagogue, and Jewish camping! There is no day where I don't have moments where I am so proud of my Judaism and I can't wait to share this passion with Hillel in the upcoming year. I cannot wait to plan fun and educational programs that make up all so proud to be who we are.

VP Tzedek

Joseph Drossman,

I love Hillel because it helps me stay connected to my Jewish identity while at college. I decided to run for the Student Board because I want to have a meaningful impact on the Jewish lives of students here at UConn. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have this leadership position in a place that means so much to me.

VP Jews in Greek Life (JIGL)

Hannah Pliskin,

I joined the Hillel Board because it has become a home to me at UConn and I wanted to be part of making it feel like home to other members of the community.
