My name is Heather Paul. I am the Springboard Fellowship Manager for Hillel International and I volunteer as the Assistant Director for Milton Marks Neuro-Oncology Family Camp, and as a children’s grief group facilitator. I am also a rabbinical student at ALEPH Renewal seminary. Previously, I was the camp director for Camp Kesem at Stanford, a free, overnight summer camp and year-round community for the children of cancer patients, and I was the Director of Undergraduate Engagement at Hillel at Stanford. I have a wonderful husband, Joseph, and a black labradoodle named Gulliver, who is the center of our world. I am passionate about writing, literature, history, experiential education, Judaism, and asking meaningful questions. This blog is a space for my writings about all of the above and then some. Enjoy!
