Hannah recently graduated from Oberlin College, where she studied Religion and English. Her time at Oberlin exposed her to new tunes, new prayers, and new opportunities for Jewish leadership. At Oberlin Hannah led High Holiday services, regular Shabbat services, and taught many of her peers to leyn Torah and Megillat Esther. She was also a member of Oberlin's Kosher-Halal Co-op, which piqued her interest in interfaith cooperation and friendship.
Hannah's senior thesis explored modern Jewish prayers for healing, delving into questions of theology, history, tradition, and the ultimate value of prayer. In the process of research, Hannah discovered dozens of new and rare Jewish prayers, and was inspired to begin writing her own.
After graduating, Hannah became the Jewish Student Life Coordinator at Oberlin Hillel, continuing to serve the community to which she had become so attached. She is currently working on her first novel.
