Assigned to Palm Beach community, From Woodmere, NY
Zahava Fertig is from Woodmere, NY and is a junior at Stern College for Women. Following her year in MMY, Zahava is now studying political science with an added interest in a future career in non-for-profit work, primarily in the Jewish community. Active in the YU community and in the broader Jewish community, Zahava is always looking for new ways to get involved. For example, Zahava is a Shabbat Ambassador at Stern, helping to assist and facilitate Shabbat programing on campus multiple times a semester. She is also a YUPAC lobbying mission participant, a YU Model U.N. co-chair, a two time Torah Tours participant, and is currently a second year Southern NCSY advisor. In whatever spare time Zahava has, (that is not spent dedicated to her studies or her communal engagement), Zahava enjoys spending time with her friends, playing around on the piano, and avoiding tourists in Manhattan.
