Title: Chief Operating Officer
Emily Hirschman is commonly referred to as “The Glue” on staff. She is the utility always on hand to help hold the staff and Hillel together. She works hard to make Berkeley Hillel run like a well-oiled machine and makes sure that staff and students have what they need to best serve the Jewish student community at Cal.
Emily joined Berkeley Hillel in 2014 after spending a year in Ashdod, Israel teaching English and volunteering in a Masa program. Emily grew up in Oakland and lived around the Pacific Northwest for several years in a previous life working in environmental nonprofit communications. Emily loves exploring the Bay Area and Northern California with her rescue dog, Maple, trying new restaurants, watching True Crime, and listening to all of the podcasts.
