BaRuCH Board 2014-2015
Alyssa Berez, Coordinator
Hi! I'm Alyssa Berez and I am BaRuCH's Education Coordinator. That means you will be hearing me give d'vars at services, among other things. I am a junior from Chevy Chase, Maryland majoring in math and minoring in NEJS and economics. I grew up Reform and went to JCC day camp for many years. Last year I was also the education coordinator, and I am very excited to be doing it again this year. Other groups I am involved with on campus include HPA and Top Score. If you want to learn more about BaRuCH, Judaism, or are interested in giving a d'var, please let me know. I can't wait to get to know everyone!
Aaron Hersh, Tefilah Coordinator
Shalom! My name is Aaron, I’m a sophomore from New York, NY, and I’m super excited to be one of BaRuCh’s T’filah coordinators this year! I grew up attending Congregation Rodeph Sholom in New York City, and URJ Eisner Camp, where I worked as a counselor and song leader this past summer. I’m interested in History, and Psychology and Judaic Studies and I’m hoping to major in one of these areas. Outside of BaRuCh, I’m involved in No Singer Clef Behind, Waltham group, Brandeis Free Play Theater Cooperative, and The Hoot. Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested in leading services, want to see something specific in our services, or if you have any T’filah related questions. I’m looking forward to a great year and getting to know all of you!
Emily Dana, Tefilah Coordinator
Abi Pont, Finance Coordinator
My name is Abi Pont and I am the 2016-2017 Baruch Finance Coordinator. When I am not crunching numbers for Baruch, I am a stage manager, pre-med student and avid reader. I am excited to spend my first year on board!
Emma Nissenbaum, Publicity Coordinator
Hi all! My name is Emma and I'm publicity coordinator for BaRuCH. I send out those fabulously witty e-mails each week, make FB events, and generally keep you up-to-date with all the funky-fresh Jewish happnin's on campus! I'm a junior here at Brandeis majoring in Psychology (neuropsych, to be exact... because it sounds better). Aside from that, you can talk to be about my other loves in life, theatre, dark chocolate, text emojis 0-:-) , and Spongebob quotes. If you want to be on the listserve (which you definitely want), let me know!
Ben Feshbach, Social Events Cooridnator
Hello! My name is Ben Feshbach, and I'm your social events coordinator (possibly with some education programming on the side). I'm in my second year at Brandeis, where I concentrate in philosophy and politics. In addition to my involvement with BaRuCH, I also compete for Brandeis' debate team, have an op-ed column with The Justice, and work as a Research Assistant in Professor Jyette Klausen's Western Jihadism Project, in the Politics Department. If I'm not doing any of those things, I'm probably cooking.
