Sarah Eckhardt

My name is Sarah Eckhardt, and I am a senior studying Economics with a math emphasis. I grew up in a Reform Jewish household here in Madison, and recently returned from a semester abroad in Jerusalem. Religions fascinate me for two reasons; how they relate to economic institutions, and what they teach us about the human experience. I do not believe that any single religious tradition holds all the answers to the big questions of human life, nor that only religions hold them. But a serious consideration of what it means to be alive cannot be made without exploring them. I look forward to learning from my peers about their experiences with faith, and discovering all the ways it influences our worlds.
