Miriasha Borsykowsky, Minnesota Hillel
Miriasha (she/her/hers) is the Ezra Jewish Education Springboard Fellow at Minnesota Hillel. Miriasha oversees all programming related to Shabbat, Jewish learning, and Jewish holidays, and is excited to be co-teaching JLF as part of that portfolio. Miriasha is originally from Burlington, Vermont and earned a B.S. in Early Childhood Education at the University of Vermont, balancing time between curricular studies and a deep dedication to Jewish life. In addition to serving on UVM Hillel’s student board, Miriasha was involved with Chabad and founded Hineinu (an LGBTQ+ Jewish affinity group). Miriasha spent a summer at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, attended Queer Talmud Camp with Svara, and served as a college fellow for six Keshet LGBTQA+ and Ally Teen Shabbatonim. Passionate for making Jewish learning accessible and meaningful, Miriasha especially enjoys creating pluralistic Jewish spaces which challenge and broaden our understandings of Judaism. She is ecstatic at the chance to use this passion in her work at Minnesota Hillel. Miriasha knows all the words to the High School Musical, Mamma Mia!, and Hamilton soundtracks and can often be found catching up on (or rewatching) favorite TV shows, getting in some “just for fun” reading, or playing Pokémon Go.
