Co-Presidents: Sarah Rockford and Solon Arguello ’15
Sarah Rockford is a sophomore from Denver, and a French and Global Studies major. In addition to school, she spends time skiing, playing Ultimate Frisbee, screen printing and volunteering at Barrels in Waterville. Her goal for Hillel at Colby is to make an inclusive and vibrant center for student life and Jewish values.
Hi! My name is Solon Arguello, and I’m one of Colby College Hillel’s co-presidents. I’m 20 years old and originally from Miami, FL. I’m a Government major, and a Jewish Studies minor, and I’m dedicated to helping Colby Hillel grow through work with peers on campus, as well as the Jewish community in Waterville. If you have any questions about anything regarding Hillel, or getting involved with the community, don’t hesitate to ask. We have events from Shabbat dinner to study sessions in the Hillel room. It’s always great to see new people, everyone is welcome!
Vice-President: Laura Rosenthal ’15
Hi! I’m Maddie Kurtz and I’m a junior from Westport, CT, double majoring in Religious Studies and Theater and Dance. Aside from Hillel, I am the CA in Taylor, a.k.a. the best dorm on campus, and a member of Colby Ambassadors. I love to dance and am an avid yogi…and obviously love to eat latkes and kugel. I am so excited to be back on the Hill and the Hillel Board!
Education Chair: Ben Zurkow ’15
Beth Israel Liason: Jacob Marx ’13
Jacob Marx is a senior from Washington DC majoring in International Studies and minoring in Russian. Jacob comes from a strongly Jewish home, has spent time in Israel and attended a Jewish high school. When he came to Colby he needed a break, and as a freshman was completely uninvolved in Hillel. Last year he began to miss his Jewish roots and the rest is history.
We have an amazing, if small, Jewish community (it’s more like a family really) and we look forward to sharing it with you.
