Ilene Boetger
President

Ilene Boetger is currently a senior studying Food Science hoping to produce your next favorite food item on the shelf. While she enjoys talking about agriculture from her time growing up in the Horse Capital of the World (Ocala, FL) and judging things from vegetables to chickens, she also enjoys reading, watching movies, and outdoor activities. More than that though, she can’t wait to continue fostering a growing and welcoming Jewish community at Cornell. If you ever have a question about Cornell or Jewish life on campus or want to hang out, make the trek out to Stocking Hall where you’ll find her chowing down on ice cream, no matter the temperature outside, or anytime when you’re at the CJL or 104West!

Jacob Mitrani
VP-Religious Programming

Jacob Mitrani is a sophomore hailing from Florida and heading to Israel. His pit stop in Ithaca is based on his desire to learn (though the subject of his learning is yet to be decided). You can find him at NCSY and BBYO Alumni events or at the nearest tisch.

Jason Lieberman
Treasurer

Jason Lieberman is a junior AEM in the dyson school of business. Jason can be found around the CJL making small talk or talking about the Titans. Jason, unlike his 5 towns persona, was born in Tennessee and currently lives in the land down under, Florida. Jason also enjoys talking about business, Judaism and football. Jason looks forward to doing the treasurer business for the CJL and for being a board member for this upcoming year

Evyatar Baer
Treasurer

Evi Baer is a junior in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, studying Biology and Society. He's a man of many talents: a former achapella singer, Rambam Mesivta's finest Yeshiva bachur, and an EMT. Since transferring from Binghamton, he's quickly taken the campus by storm. When he's not saving lives as an EMT, he's killing people (on an Xbox)! He also likes watching Football, Cornell Hockey, and chilling with friends in the CJL. He looks forward to serving the CJL community as Treasurer and as a board member!

Rebecca Roitman
VP-Social-Programming
Rebecca is a Nutritional Sciences major in the college of Human Ecology-- but NOT pre-med!  Unlike her co-VP Social who loves meat, Rebecca is a vegan (but not one of those vegans).  She can often be found in 104 West studying/talking to people because studying is much more fun when you are surrounded by friends.  In her free time, Rebecca enjoys practicing yoga, reading cookbooks, and going on spontaneous outings with her friends.  Rebecca loves the CJL and is very excited to be on board!

Talia Ostrow
VP-Social Programming

Talia is a biological sciences major in CALS with a concentration in genetics, genomics and development. Talia's experience as a social programmer has taught her how important it is to have a united community on campus, and that food is the number one way to bring people together. Catch the various food themed events put on by the socials, or any of the other events that happen throughout the semester for a good time. Talia is excited to meet incoming students, as well as to continue building the CJL's bonds!
