Tara Levy is the new IACT Israel Engagement Coordinator for the University of Miami Hillel. Tara grew up in Coral Springs, Florida and is excited to continue to engage with South Florida's diverse Jewish community in her new position. Tara recently graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Public Management. During her four years at FAU, Tara was actively involved in her campus community where she served as a student government leader, a student leadership ambassador, and was active in her campus Hillel. During her senior year, Tara served as a StandWithUs Emerson Fellow, advocating for Israel on campus and in the local community. Tara’s love for Israel stems from her experience in high school, when she participated in USY Poland/Israel Pilgrimage, and her subsequent experience on her Birthright trip in the summer of 2014. Tara is passionate about Israel and Judaism and is excited to have the opportunity to work with students to inspire them to explore their own personal Jewish identity though Israel engagement.
