Marshall Einhorn is a former software consultant, with a Master’s in Mechanical Engineering and an MBA from MIT. While he took a somewhat windy career path to Hillel and Jewish communal work, his time in the for-profit world both prepared him for his role and allows him to appreciate the gift of being passionate about his work each day. Marshall brings the pluralistic passion that was sparked as a student leader at Tufts Hillel to his work at Brown RISD Hillel, where he seeks to help students forge a deep and abiding relationship to Jewish life and to one another. Marshall lives in Providence with his wife, Deborah, and their three children, who firmly believe that the foosball table is the greatest thing about the Glenn and Darcy Weiner Center.
Born and raised in Providence, Abby has now returned to RI after receiving her BA in Psychology and Human Development from the University of Maryland, College Park. She was involved in an a cappella group and in the tour guide association, both of which gave her constant opportunities to talk a lot and engage with people – her two favorite activities! Having grown up in this community, Abby is excited to serve as the new Engagement Associate at Brown RISD Hillel. When she’s not playing Jewish geography you can find her at the gym, singing in a Rhode Island gospel choir, or eating FroYo on Thayer St. Abby would love to meet as many students as possible, whether you have already found the place Judaism and Hillel play in your college experience, or are still trying to explore. Feel free to shoot her an e-mail, meet her for coffee or FroYo, or stop by Hillel when she’s working at the front desk.

Alisa Kotler-Berkowitz is happy to be back at Brown RISD Hillel after working here in the 1990s and then spending time in Israel and NYC. Alisa is Hillel's Director of Engagement. In this position, she coordinates projects that engage students who don't initially seek Hillel out - including an internship program and alternative break projects. She loves working with the amazing students and the incredible staff here at Brown RISD Hillel. When Alisa's not at Hillel, she's hanging out with her family, volunteering at the Jewish Community Day School of RI and working in her freelance photography business.
