Rabbi Ben Shefter, Hillels of Westchester
Rabbi Ben Shefter comes to Hillels of Westchester after serving as the intern on campus last year and spending 4 years working for Heart to Heart on college campuses through the east coast. Cooking, hiking, blending Jewish values and ideas into everyday hobbies are a few of Ben’s favorite things to do. By combining a BS in Material Engineering from the University of Maryland with rabbinical ordination from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, Ben is a Spiritual engineer guiding students to think more broadly about their outlook on life beyond the confines of the university. He is excited to work with so many diverse student groups and find many ways to make Judaism deeper and relevant to the students. Ben lives in Riverdale, N.Y. with his wife, Laura, and their adorable baby boy, Isaac.
