Cheder 2010 Reception

Dominican-American Convert to Judaism Speaks at RCC

More than 150 students, faculty, and community members attended a lecture by Aliza Hausman this week sponsored by the Center for Jewish Life at SUNY Rockland.

Aliza Hausman, a freelance writer whose work has been published on chabad.org, is a Dominican-American woman who was born and grew up in Washington Heights. She was inspired as a teenager by a talk by a Holocaust survivor to investigate Judaism, and, despite strong family opposition, went through the conversion process as a young adult. She is currently married to a rabbinical student.
