Ariel Brotman – Heb U Fall 2012/UC Santa Barbara

I was a student studying abroad at Hebrew University and I do not think my time abroad would have been even half of what it was without Jeff Seidel, the student center, and his staff. Jeff planned countless Shabbaton’s that I attended and I not only made friends but had the time of my life. Within his staff I made lifelong friends that I still talk to today and their generosity as well as Jeff’s is truly touching. I recently returned to Israel and even though I was not a student anymore Jeff and his staff were there if I needed anything. Their programming truly allows students and tourists to experience Israel in ways that they never thought possible and allowing them to explore their religious identity. The work they do is truly amazing and I cannot even begin to describe all I learned about myself and Judaism thanks to them.
