Alex Kaplan

Title: Holidays and Jewish Life Chair

Class of 2022

What’s your favorite Berkeley Hillel memory? 
My favorite memory is definitely spearheading the freshman retreat with the other freshman fellows. It was really nice to be able to provide such a great experience for the freshmen as the Schultz Freshmen Engagement Fellows did for me when I was a freshman.
What is your favorite Jewish food? 
Shakshuka
Why are you on the Board and what are you looking forward to most?
I am on the board because I appreciate all that Hillel does for the students at Cal. I want to help make Hillel even more accessible to students and expose them to the values that Hillel radiates.
What else are you involved with at UC Berkeley?
Along with serving on the board of Hillel, I also serve on the board of Challah for Hunger, an organization supported by Hillel. I am also a member of the Delta Gamma fraternity, a volunteer for Sage mentorship, and a member of Spoon University Berkeley. Additionally, I am working with Cal Athletics in their Sports Nutrition department.
