Naomi Zipursky is thrilled to begin her Hebrew College journey this year in Mekorot! Naomi grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, and attended Emory University in Atlanta, GA, where she studied Linguistics and Religion. After graduating in 2017, Naomi moved out west to work at San Francisco Hillel, where she spent 4.5 years engaging undergraduate and graduate students across the city, first as a Springboard Fellow: Innovation Specialist, and then as the Director of Campuses. One of the greatest joys in her time at SF Hillel was facilitating meaningful and dynamic educational programming, from an annual Beyoncé-themed Passover seder to undergraduate and graduate student learning cohorts. Naomi has spent summers in the Pardes beit midrash and dancing barefoot at BCI – Brandeis Collegiate Institute. And, before beginning her studies at Hebrew College, Naomi spent 7 weeks immersed in Modern Hebrew at Middlebury University’s School of Hebrew Summer Immersion Program.
