Hillel President at Pace University - Pleasantville

A message from Sydney Krantz, Hillel president at Pace Unviersity Pleasantville:

I am a junior studying Digital Cinema & Filmmaking at Pace University. I ended up attending my first Hillel event as a freshman, only a month into school, in an attempt to make friends and meet new people. After attending a few more Shabbat events and holiday parties, I became the secretary of Hillel at Pace, a position I held for two years. In that time, I became very close with my fellow E-Board and Hillel members, many of whom are now close friends. Not only did I continue to attend Hillel events, dinners, and parties as a way to spend time with my friends, but I became a part of the planning process. I attended our weekly meetings to stay updated and give my input on how to get other students excited about our events. Eventually, I developed the leadership skills necessary to step up to my current position as President of Hillel at Pace. 

As President, I look forward to encouraging our eboard to find new and exciting ways to utilize Hillel resources to celebrate Jewish life at Pace. It has been a priveledge to work with my E-Board friends in developing ideas of how to appeal to students both incoming and acquainted with a new spin on some of our old events. It is also a goal of mine to involve other campus organizations and non-Jewish students in our events by allowing for more contemporary and diverse interpretation of Jewish traditions and holidays. It is a great opportunity to not only have fun, but educate others about Judaism in a non-intimidating way. I can’t reveal much quite yet, but we are in for a fun school year, and I am proud to be President of Hillel at Pace. Anyone interested should feel free to reach out to our E-Board! My contact information can be found through HOW, and I’d be happy to answer any questions about Hillel at Pace.
