Student Executive Board Elections Wrap Up at Heschel

On Feb. 5, in an atmosphere brimming with anticipation, student government elections began with candidates passionately competing for pivotal positions aimed at shaping the future of Heschel. Throughout the week, candidates campaigned using colorful arrays of posters containing plays on words positioned by water fountains or bulletin boards. The student body witnessed a spirited campaign season with various candidates competing for different positions.

Among the candidates, each cultivating distinctive visions for the school’s future, were junior Eden Bar-Chama, junior Abby Bruhim, sophomore Pierce Malter, sophomore Caleb Creizman, and junior Elana Farbiarz, all eager to serve their peers and foster a vibrant community. Their enthusiastic speeches encapsulated a spectrum of aspirations, ranging from enhancing student engagement to tackling prevalent issues head-on, leading them to each gain a spot on the new executive board.

President Bar-Chama radiates an infectious enthusiasm for fostering inclusivity and vibrancy within the school community. 

“I aspire to make Heschel more fun and engaging for everyone,” she said. “I want to make everyone who isn’t on Student Government feel just as valued and respected as Student Government members, as well as emphasize clubs and school talent that amplify our greatness!”

Bruhim, Spirit Vice President (VP), articulates a vision of bringing more passion to school events. 

“I want to make a change in the school and create events where everyone is excited to join in and have fun,” Bruhim said.

Addressing challenges facing the student body, Malter, Student Affairs VP, stressed the importance of proactive engagement in tackling emerging issues. 

“There’s a lot of issues people have. More are only going to pop up. And the only way they will be solved is if Student Affairs shows up,” Malter said.

Hesed and Tzedek VP, Creizman, spotlighted the value of personal service and accessibility to volunteer opportunities. 

“My main focus is to elevate individual volunteering,” he said. “We have many options for hesed but need to increase their accessibility.”

Lastly, Farbiarz, Programming VP, envisions vast student empowerment. 

“My aspirations for VP are to create a productive and welcoming council that changes the everyday experiences of students in small ways as well as year-round projects on a big scale,” she said.

As the excitement of the election subsides, the torch passes to the newly elected executive board, charged with the responsibility of translating their promises and aspirations into action. The student body’s collective hopes now rest on the shoulders of these dedicated individuals tasked with steering Heschel toward a future of excellence.
