Greg Steinberger holds a master's degree in social work from the Sol Drachler Program in Jewish Communal Leadership at the University of Michigan. He has worked for the UW Hillel since 1999. Prior to coming to the UW Greg worked at the Ohio State University Hillel, where he served as associate director, and learned at the knee of our talented and creative director Joseph Kohane. Greg received the 2002 Richard M. Joel Exemplar of Excellence award for his work to transform the UW Hillel Foundation into one of national recognition and excellence. Under his leadership, the UW Hillel has been transformed from a small well-liked, yet sleepy, campus institution to one that reaches increasingly large numbers of Jewish students, and is an example for what Hillels can and should become.
UW Hillel graduates can be found working in every major Jewish organization in America. To this end, Greg was recognized at the 2004 AIPAC policy conference as an "ally of the year" for his work in developing pro-Israel activists at both the lay and professional level.

Eden was born and raised in Jerusalem in a large extended family, daughter of a Jewish educator and a family therapist, who made aliyah from Holland and from the United States. Prior to her arrival in Madison, Eden has worked as a tour guide at the Tower of David Museum in the Old City of Jerusalem. She recently graduated from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and holds a B.A. in Sociology and Humanities. She looks forward to sharing Israeli culture with students and is excited to learn more about American Jewish life.

In that spirit anyone can join the conversation and ask questions about Israel and Jewish.
