Michele Freed

Chair, Hillel Governing Board, University of Michigan

Michele Freed is a senior at the University of Michigan and chair of its Hillel’s governing board.  She grew up in Young Judaea, attending the Zionist youth movement’s summer camps, serving on the group’s national board and studying in Israel through Young Judaea Year Course before her freshman year at Michigan.

Michele knew before she set foot on campus that she wanted to provide resources and plan events for Israel activism for her peers at Michigan. As a founding member of I-LEAD (Israel Leadership Education Advocacy and Dialogue), she is now realizing that goal.
