“The best part about working at a high school is getting to work with students. It’s the most rewarding thing that you can do,” says Didi Kalmanofsky, Heschel’s new Jewish and Student Life (JSL) fellow. Kalmanofsky is a Heschel alumnus who graduated in 2012.
After graduating from Heschel, Kalmanofsky took a gap year in Israel. “I highly recommend the experience. It was amazing,” he remarked. After his gap year, he attended State University of New York (SUNY) Buffalo, where he studied philosophy and psychology. There, Kalmanofsky continued playing Frisbee, was a part of the J Street U, a pro-Israel organization, and joined Hillel. In the past few years, Kalmanofsky has worked year-round as the Programming Coordinator at Ramah camps: New England and Berkshires.
Kalmanofsky is excited to be at Heschel and to work with the students. Like most of us, he faces the challenge of trying to figure out how this year will play out. Even though the JSL offices don’t look the same this year, he invites you to reach out and get to know Heschel’s newest JSL member.
