Rabba Amalia Haas ’91 was named the senior Jewish educator and campus rabba for Oberlin Hillel. She assumed the role on July 1 after serving in an interim capacity in spring.

A double major who earned a bachelor’s degree in music and women’s studies with a minor in Jewish studies, Haas went on to earn a master’s degree in Jewish education from Yeshiva University in New York City. Previously, she was the founding commuter services director for Cleveland Hillel, program director and student leader at Oberlin Hillel, and chair of the Oberlin Hillel lay leadership committee. 

“I’m excited to be partnering with my colleagues here who are part of Cleveland Hillel Foundation and also to be building relationships with Hillel colleagues across the country and at Hillel International,” Haas told the Cleveland Jewish News. “And of course, deepening my connections to my alma mater and hoping to really contribute to revitalizing and strengthening Jewish life on the campus.”
