Hello, my name is Jacob, and I am a senior at UW-Madison studying history and political science. I was born in Massachusetts, and I also lived for many years in New Jersey. I am Jewish, but was raised in a fairly secular household, and I consider myself agnostic. Being Jewish is still an important part of my identity though. When it comes to the study of religion, I am particularly interested in the intersection of faith and modern ideas and ideology. I look forward to learning from others about their beliefs and helping to contribute to interfaith dialogue on campus. Hopefully, the progress we make can serve as a model for pluralism on a larger scale.
