DEAN PAZ
PRESIDENT

  Alo! My name is Dean and I am the President of Aggies for Israel. I am a third year Cellular Biology major and am originally from Los Angeles, CA. As well as this position I work in a plant research lab in which I am currently working on cloning plant proteins. Fun fact about me is that I lived in Bedouin tents for a week on a student exchange program with a school in Israel. I also have no appendix. I advocate for Israel primarily because of my Israeli heritage. The anti-Semitism that has arisen since the establishment of Israel is unjust. Anti-Semites are close minded and spread incorrect information that influences the public opinion. I am here to change those incorrect judgments and teach the public about how wonderful Israel really is.

JACOB GREENSTEIN OUTREACH 

  My name is Jacob Greenstein and I am a first-year student majoring in Economics and International Relations. I am from San Diego, CA and as well as being Outreach Chair I am also a member of Alpha Epsilon Pi, the Jewish Fraternity here at Davis. I play piano and enjoy watching and playing football and baseball. I joined AFI because I love to read, write, and most importantly educate people about Israel. What is most important to me is that people are given the correct information and tools to defend, advocate, and form their own opinions about Israel.

ARIELLE ZOKEN
PROGRAMING

  Hi! My name is Arielle Zoken. I am a first year, undeclared Humanities major. I am the Programming Chair of AFI. Along with AFI, I am a part of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi (the Jewish interest sorority). I joined the board because learning and advocating for Israel as been drilled into me since as long as I can remember. Instead of starting college after high school, I took a gap year in Israel with Young Judea Year Course and volunteered as an EMS worker and was very politically involved in the region. Each Shabbat I would travel to a different part of the country, falling more in love with the state. I endeavor to plan programs that not only promote Israel on campus, but to educate and inspire others to travel to Israel and form a connection with the state I love. A fun fact about me, I am horrible at giving directions even with Google Maps at my side.

KARIN DABACH
DESIGN CHAIR

Hi! My name is Karin Dabach and I am the Design Chair for Aggies for Israel. I am a second year Biological Sciences major at UC Davis and am from Los Angeles, CA. One of my first days as a freshman in Davis, a fellow student asked me why I was unable to eat a food item offered at the dining hall. When I responded with the fact that it was not kosher, she looked perplexed. She told me that that was the first time she’s heard of “kosher” and that I was the first Israeli person she’s ever met. Knowing that Davis is full of people who have never encountered anything to do with the Jewish race, drives me to want to be a part of Aggies for Israel and show them the beautifully unique attributes of our culture. Israel is home and I will stand by it’s side forever. I’m excited for what this year has in store for us.

DANIELA AMIR
ISRAEL FELLOW

Shalom everyone! My name is Daniela and I am the Israel Fellow for Hillel at Davis and Sacramento. I was born in Santa Barbara, California. When I was 6 years old, my parents decided that their daughters should be raied in Israel and we moved to the Jewish State! I just completed my studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem with a BA in Social Work. At my free time I love doing yoga and meditation, traveling in Israel and around the world, and spending time with my dear family and friends. A fun fact about me is that I volunteered a few months in Africa at a Park for Engendered animals. I made good friends among some of the big cats and elephants there.

CHARLINE DELKHAH
VICE PRESIDENT  

  Shalom!! My name is Charline Delkhah and I’m the Vice President for AFI. I’m currently a third year Managerial Economics major with a minor in Computer Science. Along with this amazing position I hold, I'm also an intern for The David Project. I'm originally from Los Angeles (go Lakers!) and deeply miss the sunshine. After leaving a city that is flooded with Judaism, it was eyeopening to see the reality of the hatred that people have towards our community. I want to be able to unify our community and correct the misjudgments that people have about Israel. I’m so happy and honored to be a part of an organization that is motivated to accomplish the same goal I have

LEAH AHDOOT
INREACH

  Hey! My name is Leah Ahdoot and I am the Inreach Chair for Aggies for Israel. I am a second-year Biological Sciences major at UC Davis and am from Irvine, CA. After going on a trip to Poland and Israel my junior year of high school, my pride to be Jewish flourished. Since then it has been my goal to keep the beautiful traditions of Judaism alive and to advocate for Israel- making sure that there is always a place we can call home. A fun fact about me is that I volunteered on an Israeli Medic Army Base for a few weeks during the summer and got to put medical supplies in backpacks that the combat medics used to help injured soldiers. Currently, I am dreaming of being in Tel Aviv and sipping on Iced Aromas...lots of them :)

STUART FOX
ZBT LIASON

Greetings! My name is Stuart Fox and I am AFI’s Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity representative. I am a first year Political Science-Public Service major and am originally from Oxnard, CA. I am also a Founding Father for the Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity, and have assumed the role of Operations Director. A fun fact is that my eyes are heterochromatic; though my eyes are officially green, my left eye has more of a bluish-grey color. I joined AFI in an effort to combat the misconstructions and blatant falsehoods regarding Israel, as well as participate in wholesome discussions/activism pertaining to Israel-U.S. politics. Through my Jewish heritage, I’ve become keenly aware of the rampant Antisemitism around the world, as well as on campus, and feel that something must change. This concern has necessitated my joining of AFI to collaborate with like-minded individuals in hopes of lessening hostility at UC Davis and everywhere else.
