Director of Birthright and Engagement Alexi Biener
is our Director of Birthright and Engagement and is ecstatic to be back at Santa Barbara Hillel for her third year! Originally from Los Angeles, more specifically, the “valley,” Alexi graduated from San Diego State University where she studied Child and Family Development and Jewish Studies. When she gets excited about things you will absolutely be able to tell – she is slightly obsessed with dancing, soup, and the color lime green. Alexi loves Hillel because it is the place to go to find what you want and need in a Jewish organization – socially, culturally, or religiously. Israel is Alexi’s home away from home and truly holds a very special place in her heart. You will always be able to find Alexi working hard at her desk, schmoozing with students in IV or enthusiastically tabling on campus! She loves laughing and people and she would love to meet you and get to know you!
