“What better way to introduce Jewish students to our campus community than through an adaptation of a favorite Aggie tradition,” said Rabbi Matt Rosenberg, executive director of Hillel. “We look forward to meeting our future student leaders and helping them form friendships to last throughout their college careers.”
During her free time Danielle enjoys being active – playing golf and hanging out with friends. Danielle is excited to start her journey with Texas A&M Hillel and can’t wait to meet all the students! To set up your own coffee date with Danielle, she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook.
Danielle succeeds Veronica Beskin, our first Jewish Student Life Coordinator, who has relocated to Atlanta to become the Campus Director of Georgia Tech Hillel and Georgia State Hillel.
In March, the Texas A&M Hillel Board of Directors approved new bylaws for the nearly 100-year-old organization. This approval marked the first major revision of the organization’s bylaws in decades and ushered in a new structure for the Board of Directors, which now includes an executive committee and 26 members.

When student senators at Texas A&M University in College Station passed a resolution the evening of April 22 in the 67th session of A&M’s student legislature, on the 67th birthday of the state of Israel, A&M became only the second U.S. university to pass a pro-Israel resolution and the fourth to do so in the school year. I heard about what happened, and having recently met some of the active, engaged and committed students at Texas A&M Hillel, I sought the backstory.
