Emily Hirschman

Title: Director of Operations and Communications

Emily Hirschman joined Berkeley Hillel after coming out of a long-term Masa program teaching English and volunteering in Israel.  Emily grew up in Oakland and Berkeley but left for college in northern California to study public relations and sustainability management.  Before spending 10 months in Ashdod, Israel working with underserved school children, Emily worked in environmental non-profit communications and program planning in Portland, Oregon for three years.  Emily is very excited to return to the Bay Area and bring her nonprofit and communications experience to Berkeley Hillel and the Jewish community at Cal.
