Ronni Shalem
Student Board Member

My name is Ronni Shalem and I am a senior at Emory University. I am a psychology major and global health minor and hoping to go on to Physicians Assistant graduate school. In high school I interned at the Jewish Museum in New York, one of my favorite places to visit when I am home. My parents are Israeli, so I am first generation American. My annual visits to Israel and Jewish education have instilled in me a deep love for Israel. I am so happy to be part of such a wonderful Jewish community at Chabad, where I can foster and develop my Jewish identity through Lunch-and-Learns, the Sinai Scholars program, as well as many other learning events
