Matthew Elfenbein, Israel Engagement Coordinator
Matthew Elfenbein is eager and enthusiastic to serve as the Israel Engagement Coordinator for Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach. Matthew’s roots are in the Boca Raton and FAU community, where he served as the JSU President and other roles within Hillel. In 2016, Matthew earned his B.A. in Multimedia Studies from FAU and then went to New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where he earned his M.A. degree in Cinema Studies in January 2018. His passion for Israel extends beyond staying informed with the news. He has traveled to Israel on Birthright and JNF Alternative Winter Break, each time doing Tikkum Olam. Matthew is looking forward to enchanting and allowing others to find their place with Israel, whether it is emotionally, spiritually, or physically with the land. If you do not see Matthew running around, he is most likely listening to music, watching/analyzing movies, meeting new people, or hanging out with his dog, Oreo.
