Jeremy Tibbetts

Campus Coordinator

Jeremy Tibbetts grew up in the Boston area, attending South Area Solomon Schechter Day School, Gann Academy, and Newton North High
School. He spent his gap year at Hebrew University and Yeshivat Ma'ale Gilboa. He left Israel with two commitments: spending his life
cultivating his connection to Judaism and Israel, and finally finishing the last season of Breaking Bad (still his favorite show!).
Even before he was registered for college courses he was a board
member of UMass' Student Alliance For Israel, and soon became involved with UMass' Orthodox Jewish group KHH as well as working with his local Hillel board and Hillel International's Student Cabinet.  Jeremy was also active in UMass Amherst's Student Government Association, worked on local and national interfaith initiatives through InterFaith Youth Core, joined Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, and finally learned how to ride a bicycle.  In the summers you would usually have caught him at Camp Yavneh where he was a camper and staff member for over 10 years.  One of his proudest
achievements is having a Youtube playlist of niggunim with over 1,500 views. Jeremy firmly believes that building up our communities is the
strongest way to build up ourselves.
