Hagalil Region, USY

Religion/Education VP

Hey Hagalil!!!! My name is Heather Brandspiegel and I am ecstatic to serve as your 2014-2015 Hagalil Religion/Education Vice President! I am really excited for this year and I hope you are too! I know it will be a great one!

Here is some background info about myself, so you can get to know me. I was born in Northeast Philadelphia and lived there for a couple of years. When I was two I moved to East Windsor, New Jersey, where I have resided ever since. I have been attending Jewish Day School since Kindergarten, and I currently attend a Jewish High School in Manhattan, NY on the upper west side called The Abraham Joshua Heschel School (ironic I know). If you are ever in NY for a day, let me know. I was a member of Kadima, before I entered USY, and the rest (as they say) is history.

Here are some fun, and maybe interesting, facts about myself. My favorite colors are blue and orange (and no I am not a Mets fan), but I am a Phillies fan (and all other Philadelphia sports teams). I have an older sister and younger brother, who is in Kadima, as well as a puppy. I have an obsession with coffee, maybe more of an addiction. My favorite food is pizza and my favorite ice cream flavor is cookies n’ cream. I cannot wait to learn about all of you this year and share more about myself along the way.

Feel free to contact me any time for questions about Judaism or just to chat. I am available 24/6 on my cell, Facebook, email, and you can even write me a letter.

So, Hagalil get pumped! Let’s get ready for this year! I can’t wait to spend it with you, Hagalil, as your Rel/Ed VP.

Lets make this year a fantastic one!
