Stand On One Foot with Aly

My name is Aly Silverberg and I’m in my 3rd year of an Honours Specialization in MIT with a certificate in digital communications at Western. My years here at Western have been some of the best of my life without a doubt. Although I had been extremely involved in Jewish life in high school, I was hesitant to try and find the same experience in University – how would it compare?

But when an upper year decided to invite me to my first Israel on Campus event, everything changed. I finally began to find my place at Western and a community I could call my own. From becoming a first year exec member, to VP Communications, and now Vice President of Israel on Campus, I would have never been able to accomplish my personal goals without the support from fellow students and Hillel staff.

My experiences with Israel on Campus and Western Hillel have made me the person I am today, and I want to help ensure that every other student can find themselves here like I did. This year’s On One Foot campaign will help future and current students build their Jewish identities, make friends, and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Thanks for your support,

Aly Silverberg
