As the Jewish people, a huge part of knowing who we are is knowing where we came from. Here at Leviathan, we take a page out of our own cultural book and delve into the bygone days of our journal’s glorious past to better our present publication. When the editorial staff of Leviathan found this particular article in our archives, we felt a pointed connection with our peers from 1978 as we read about their struggles with issues that are still pertinent and important to us. Enjoy this blast from the past, however it may apply to your present!

Meet the Jewish Studies Interns! Sarah Edelstein and Hana Keefe-Guerrero are this year’s representatives for the Jewish Studies program. They are interested in making the program available to all students, despite religious, cultural or ethnic affiliation. Want to learn more about the program? You can visit them at their office hours on Thursdays at 2pm at the Stevenson Cafe . They are now accepting submissions for the Jewish Studies blog. Email submissions or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sarah Edelstein is a Jewish Studies major, thoroughly enjoying her sophomore year of slug life in the beautiful community of Stevenson College. A Cardiff by the Sea native, her interests include reading, writing, taking long strolls through the redwoods, attending Shabbat dinners at the Chabad Student Center, drinking tea, and discovering the underlying sociopolitical messages in Lil Wayne’s lyrics. Upon graduation from UCSC, Sarah hopes to spend time abroad before applying to rabbinical school at the Hebrew Union College.
Hana Keefe-Guerrero was born and raised in Berkeley in a Sephardic family. She attends a Jewish Renewal synagogue, one of the most liberal and least traditional sects of the modern Jewish world. Her connection with Judaism has been mostly cultural, therefore she finds it interesting that she have become so involved with the Jewish community. During high school, she interned at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco and is now a Jewish Studies minor. She hopes to attend graduate school in Berkeley or Los Angeles, focusing on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
