My name is Sara Feinman and I am the President of Hillel of Sonoma County. I'm from San Diego, CA and am a graduating 4th year majoring in Women’s and Gender Studies at Sonoma State University. I love crafting, learning, watching movies, volunteering, and spending time with friends. It has been such a joy to intern for Hillel since my first year of college and it has shaped my experience as a student in so many positive ways! Hillel showed me how important it is to build and maintain a community of supportive and compassionate friends. Through Hillel I found my voice, closest friends, invaluable leadership skills, and most importantly a home away from home!
Hi! My name is Haddie Daner and I am the Vice President of Hillel of Sonoma County. I'm from Atascadero. CA and am a 3rd year majoring in Business Administration and minoring in Jewish Studies at Sonoma State University. I love hiking, dancing, volunteering, spending time with my friends, and photography. I've enjoyed being an intern since my second year of college because it is the best way to create memories and get to know other Jewish students on campus! Hillel is my home away from home and I'm beyond thankful to be a part of our positive and uplifting community!
Currently a Professor of Music Theory and Composition and the Director of Jewish Studies at Sonoma State University. As a composer Dr. Wilson frequently incorporates tropes from the Jewish liturgy, sometimes in outwardly Jewish music (for example, his original setting of the Avinu Malkeynu prayer), other times for no particular reason than the melody just sounds good (Symphony No. 1, Ancient Calls and Echoes for Two Horns and Organ). Professor Wilson's composition teachers included Dan Asia, Ralph Shapey, Shulamit Ran, Malcom Peyton, and Ed Diamente. Dr. Wilson is a trombonist who regularly blows the shofar- all 100 blasts- at High Holiday services. He encourages all students to check out the Jewish Studies Program at Sonoma State!
