Director of Jewish Student Life
Simcha grew up in the beautiful Ithaca New York and attended Cornell University where she studied Digital Media and Social Change.
After graduating in 2015, she worked throughout the Non Profit and High-Tech world. Whether bringing thousands of women to Israel with the JWRP or supporting English-speaking teens in Jerusalem, Simcha's goal is to create spaces for thinking and connection. From recording songs with indigenous women in Mexico to filming pop stars in Uganda, Simcha aims to create events, art, and conversation that connect us. Her work as a digital producer has been covered by the Huffington Post, the New Yorker, and NPR.
Simcha now returns back home after years living abroad in South America and Israel, to commit her time to the Cornell Jewish community. In her current position she works to inspire Hillel Staff and Cornell Students to create lasting impact for the Cornell Jewish community.
Simcha loves to cook, play music with her husband and family, and swim in all the magical local spots.
