My name is Elad Cohen and I am a second-year Pre-Communication major. I am originally from Los Angeles and have been raised by two Israeli parents. I am pursuing the Jewish Studies minor for a few reasons, the main being that I am Jewish and have followed Jewish tradition my entire life. I have also studied Hebrew throughout elementary, middle, and high school, therefore I plan to take this minor to the next level by adding the Hebrew emphasis. I am excited to complete this minor, make my parents proud, and further my knowledge about Jewish religion through higher education and different teaching methods.
