My name is Taylor Divello (she/her) ‘23 and I’m the VP of External Socials for the Jewish Greek Council for Hillel at ASU. I first attended an event at Hillel during my first year at ASU when a friend in my sorority recommended it. I immediately felt welcomed at that first Shabbat and am grateful to the staff who went out of their way to keep me informed of other opportunities and kept me connected to the greater Hillel community over the years.
I love that I felt so comfortable right away and am glad that I continued coming back. I have made some of my closest college friends through Hillel. Hillel at ASU provides many different options. You can get involved through classes, Shabbat, the Jewish Greek Life Council, and so much more. There is something for everyone no matter your interests or Jewish background!
I’ve met many amazing lifelong friends through new experiences including social programs, a trip to Disneyland, and Birthright! I’m forever grateful for the opportunity to go on a trip of a lifetime to learn more about my roots and further my education in Israel.
I decided to join the Taste of Tempe cohort this year because I wanted to find something new before I graduate in May. I wanted to continue meeting new Jewish students and I thought this was a great way to venture out and try new restaurants and activities around Tempe with both old and new friends!
