Student Executive





Oh hi there! My name is Emi Stiefel Alperin and I am honored to be serving as the president of Hillel at Binghamton. I am a Senior from Minnesota, studying Graphic Design with a Minor in Urban Planning. I really enjoy cooking, meeting new people, crafts, and having fun. I served as the vice president of public relations my junior year and FYSH (First Year Students of Hillel) Director my sophomore year and got to meet and become friends with really cool first years! My favorite part of Hillel is the community. I have met my closest friends through Hillel and I really enjoy meeting new faces at every event. I also really like the pluralistic aspect of our community and the fact that people practice Judaism in different ways. I am excited for an amazing school year!
