Student Story l Ari Rotenberg
I came all the way here from Texas for UBC's Cognitive Systems program. I was a shy freshman so it took me a while to open up to Hillel and the Jewish community here, but when I did in my second year, I realized that "your Jewish home away from home" is much more than a cheesy slogan. It took no time for me to join JSA and am now the club's president.
One memory from Hillel that always brings up a smile is the Shabbat dinner I planned all about Jewish Hollywood. We learned about the film industry's Jewish immigrant founders who moved to California where the technology-monopolizing Thomas Edison couldn't limit their artistic and business endeavors. Hillel game me a platform to not only learn about modern Jewish history that directly affects me but to teach others about it too!
