Eliana Rohrig


Eliana Rohrig graduated from Binghamton University with a BA in History and Judaic Studies. She grew up in Riverdale, NY and spent five summers as counselor, division head and Jewish educator. At camp, she started her own Jewish leadership and learning nightly initiative for counselors in camp called the "Nyack Beit Midrash." A big part of her Jewish identity includes the formative experiences she had in Israel. Before college she took a gap year and lived in Jerusalem studying Torah. Eliana loved her time in Israel so much that she  knew after college she wanted to work in Jewish Education. She looked for ways to return. During her Junior Year of College, she  studied on the Nachshon Project, a fellowship for college students interested in going into Jewish Education/Non Profit Professions. Currently, Eliana is working at the Program Coordinator at Onward Israel,  a non-profit that brings 2,500 Jewish college students to Intern in Israel each summer. Eliana's work at Onward combines her love for Israel, creating experimental Jewish learning spaces, and passion for providing Jewish students abroad experiences where they can explore their identities in both an intentional and fun way!
