Are you named after someone? If so, who? I am named after Chaim and Henoch, who are my grandmothers' fathers.

What are some of your hobbies outside of school?

My favorite thing to do is watch Georgia football. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends as often as I can.

If you could go back and tell yourself one piece of advice before coming into college, what would that be?

I would tell myself to work on time management skills. That is something that is not taught in high school and can be very useful in a college setting.

Can you tell us an interesting fact that people would be surprised to know about you?

I've been to the Masters Golf Tournament twice! 

Where do you spend most of your time on campus?

I spend most of my time on campus either in my dorm room, or eating in the commons. My favorite place on campus is definitely the commons.

You are a brother of AEPi here at KSU, tell us your favorite aspect of being in this fraternity?

My favorite aspect is being in a fraternity where all of the brothers understand and value what it means to be Jewish. If I had joined a different fraternity, they would not understand some of the things I do since Judaism is so different from other religions.

What was your first impression of the Jewish community here at Kennesaw?

I was very impressed with the Jewish community here. I wasn't expecting so many people to be at Shabbat dinner. I also didn't think that I would go to Shabbat as often as I do, but it's such a great time every time I attend so I always go back.

Why would you encourage other Jewish students to get involved with Chabad?

I would encourage other Jewish students to get involved with Chabad first because it’s an amazing place, but also because it’s a way to meet other Jewish students at Kennesaw and make friends that will last forever.

Who is your favorite Jewish person and why?

My favorite Jew is my mom. She is the reason I am Jewish in the first place, so I have to appreciate that I grew up Jewish. I'm happy that she sent me to Epstein, because I'm still very close with the friends that I made there, and I will always have her to thank for that.

What is your favorite Jewish food?

My favorite Jewish food is my grandmother’s chicken soup she makes when my family goes to my grandparents' house for Shabbat. It's what I look forward to every time we go there for dinner, and it brightens my day.
