Gil Rubin

My name is Gil Rubin and I am from Israel, but I grew up in Christchurch (Dorset, not New Zealand!). I am very excited to be on your UJS sabbatical team for the year 2020/21, focusing on interfaith, social action, and Israel trips, and even more excited to facilitate and expand Jewish life on campus! I am in my final year at the University of Cambridge studying Politics and International Relations.

During my time at university I got stuck into as much of campus life as I could! To name a few things: I was active in my college community, serving as security officer for our biennial Ball, played on our college badminton team, and studied Arabic at the Language Centre. But being at university also opened me up to exploring my Jewish identity and to the importance of campaigning for Jewish issues through experiences on UJS programs and events such as Manhigut and NUS conference. I am looking forward to providing these experiences for a new generation of students and, consequently, making Jewish life thrive on campus!
