Regional Advisor, New England
Robyn Frum is the New England Regional Advisor for Hasbara Fellowships. Hailing from Cleveland Ohio, Robyn gradated with a Bachelors of Science in Microbiology from The Ohio State University. As student she was an active Hasbara Fellow and those experiences inspired her to join the Hasbara Staff after graduating. While in college, Robyn founded and maintained an executive board member position in Buckeyes for Israel, their campus Israel activism organization. She played an active role in defeating BDS twice at OSU as well as bringing strong Israel programming to campus and building relationships with key players both in the campus community, and the Israel World. She enjoys teaching these skills to Hasbara Fellows.
Jewish Medical Network:
Elior Anina, Director
Elior is a recent graduate of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology/ Biotechnology and a minor in Psychology. Elior served on the board of AED National Pre Health Honor Society, the Boston Combined Jewish Philanthropy, WPI Student Government, and was a graduate of the Emerging Leader’s Seminar.
She has significant experience working in the healthcare field as a medical assistant in the fields of Urology and Ophthalmology. Additionally, she spent two months in Argentina, working to bring medicine to underprivileged men, women, and children.
Witnessing the adversity of the underprivileged, and the subsequent lack of access to proper medical care, she is inspired to work with underserved populations and take action against poverty and malnutrition, and make a larger social impact in the future.
“As a recent student, I know how stressful it is being Pre- Med. As the new director of JMN, I plan to help support students toward their healthcare dreams.
My goal as the new director of JMN is to provide college students with networking opportunities in the greater Boston area; to allow students to gain educational insight from over 50 specialists at world-renowned hospitals; to create a citywide Jewish network; to connect students; to support students in their endeavors in becoming healthcare leaders of the future.
I hope to use my knowledge and skills to benefit the Jewish community and advance the field of healthcare by helping develop the leaders of tomorrow.”
One of her proudest undergraduate accomplishments was spearheading the restart of the Hillel. In just six months the new Hillel obtained over 130 members. Her WPI legacy is that the Hillel has the ability to serve the Jewish Community like never before.
