Letter from the Alumni Engagement Team

Sarah Levy, Alumni Intern

Hi! My name is Sarah Levy, and I am so excited to be working with Diller once again as the Alumni Intern! I was a Fellow in Cohort 4, and I am working as the second staff for Cohort 9 this year. I am currently in my fourth year of Biology at McMaster University, but completing my online classes from home. Something that I took from my year in Diller was the importance of community. As a Fellow, I met so many amazing people from around the globe, who I am still in contact with today. Diller is so unique in that sense - no matter where I go, I feel that I have a community with me.


I am really looking forward to getting to know many more alumni throughout the year by organizing some exciting events and spending an amazing year with Cohort 9. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about my role, alumni programming, or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact me at sarahtlevy@hotmail.com. In addition, if you have any ideas for programming or would like to plan a reunion for your cohort, please reach out to me and I’d be happy to help. Stay tuned for more exciting alumni opportunities coming soon!


Abe Urowitz Kaufman, Junior Alumni Intern

Hi! My name is Abe Urowitz Kaufman. Currently, I am a grade 12 student at TanenbaumCHAT. I was so lucky to be a member of last year’s Cohort 8. My favourite memory from my Diller experience was meeting other Fellows from around the world, even though it had to be on Zoom. It was amazing to be able to interact with other Jews from such different backgrounds, but who have the same experience as you halfway across the world. I’m so excited to be a part of the Diller organization again this year as the first Junior Alumni Intern. Along with Sarah Levy, we will create a stronger, better, and more robust alumni program with more newsletters, activities, and ways to get involved with Diller! 

If you have any questions about the upcoming year, please feel free to reach out to me at abe.urowitzkaufman@gmail.com. Can’t wait to see you all during this exciting year!
