Rabbi Henry Shreibman

“I had faced anti-Semitism at a young age, which resulted in me considering myself atheist. Upon going to college, I registered for a Jewish studies course with Rabbi Shreibman at Sonoma State University, with the intention of dropping. I ended up falling in love with Judaism, reconnecting myself to the Jewish community and traveling to Israel — and now I’m an intern for Hillel. The Jewish studies department that he built at SSU has been facing enormous cuts in the past few years, but he continues to live for his students. When I first took his class four years ago, very few students were interested. Now, waitlists are up to 20 students of all religious backgrounds. He refuses to give up on us and encourages us to make positive changes in the world.”
