Chabad Student Board

Hi! I'm Shelby Cohen from Fort Lee, New Jersey. I'm a Telecommunication and Film and Communication Studies double major with dreams of breaking into the broadcasting industry after college. On campus I've interned for WVUA 23 and will be interning with WVUA-FM this semester. I'm looking forward to getting further involved with the Chabad community and I'm so excited to see what this year has in store!

Hi! My name is Madison Joyce and I am currently a Junior studying Archaeology and Art History. The plan is to some day work for the Israeli government uncovering our ancestor’s past. This will hopefully keep our traditions alive and possibly find new ones.

Each of us can serve as a leader. And one leader creates another and another, ad infinitum, just as one candle’s flame lights another and another until the once-impenetrable darkness has turned to brilliant light.


We always welcome new program ideas and assistance, so contact us if you'd like to serve as a member of the board. You can be an integral part of a dynamic circle of Jewish students at Bama who are using their talent to make a difference.
Add your voice and feel the difference you make. Together we can keep the flame of Judaism shining brightly in the UA community and beyond.
