Ben Cohen, Birthright Engagement Intern
Hi, my name is Ben Cohen, and I am a sophomore at Florida Atlantic University, majoring in Business Management. I was born and raised in Plantation, FL, and I’m as big of a sports fan as you will find. This upcoming year, I will have the honor and privilege of serving as a birthright intern at Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach. I feel I will have an excellent opportunity to make an impact in my position since I am fresh off an unforgettable birthright experience myself this past summer. I was heavily involved with Hillel during my freshman year in college, and it really helped me settle in and become comfortable in my new environment. The more people I met this past year that were involved or a part of Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach, the more I realized how wonderful of an opportunity this is to be able to get to know other fellow Jewish students. This year, my primary focus will be on creating ways for Jewish students to realize what a wonderful opportunity they have in front of them by going on Birthright with Hillel. A free 10-day trip to Israel? What can be better than that? I will be able to answer any and all questions the students may have about Birthright by having my own experience of a Birthright trip. I’m really looking forward to this year serving as a Birthright intern and I know that I will make a great impact.
