Samantha Agranoff

Class of 2018
BA, Major in Jewish Studies, and BSW in Social Work
Primary office:


Summary

“In August 2018, I will be making Aliyah (moving to Israel) and after a couple of months will serve in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force). I won’t know what unit or position I will have until I go through the draft process, but I know that the knowledge and skills I’ve received from my time at KU will be directly transferable to my IDF service. When I am not on base, I will be living with a host family on a kibbutz in the south. The Jewish Studies major allowed me to live and study in Israel for a semester, helping to strengthen a passion for Jewish spaces and cultivating a personal ownership over America’s role in their relationship with Israel.“ -Sam
