"I have accepted a position as Israel Engagement Associate at The University of Delaware. I will be taking my Jayhawk pride into Blue Hen country. I will be working with students to build their relationship with Israel as well as staffing their Birthright trips. Israel is at the forefront of foreign policy for the United States and there should be a dialogue that students and campuses are comfortable coming together to talk about. I have always had a special connection to Israel and I can not wait for it to become my career. The Jewish Studies department has been a great support system during my time here at KU and helped me study abroad at The University of Haifa. I can not wait to see what the future holds in the Jewish professional world." -Becca
The College Monthly Faculty/Staff Newsletter, Dec. 2017: In Jewish studies, a major symposium came together thanks to the efforts of program assistant Carla Aspenberg. She organized the “Jews in the Midwest” conference featuring four speakers from outside campus, as well as KU. She has also assisted the transition of a new director of undergraduate studies and managed other duties amid staff changes. And following the conference in November, she quickly switched gears to organizing a new, unexpected faculty hire in the department. Director John Younger said that without Carla, “Jewish studies would be dead in the water.”
