Co-Chair: Ethan Rutta
Hey everyone! My name is Ethan Rutta and I am super excited to be one of the OCP’s Co-Chairs this year. I am a junior in the College of Arts and Sciences studying PPE. I am from Great Neck, New York, and I went to North Shore Hebrew Academy before spending a gap year in Yeshivat Torat Shraga in Jerusalem. When I’m not hanging around Hillel, you can probably find me pretending to study in my room or out playing basketball, golf, or spikeball with friends. I am pumped to get back to campus so I can see everyone again and meet the class of 2026!

I am a Senior studying Biochemistry in the College, in addition to being Pre-Med. I can usually be found watching football or hockey, especially Devils games. I also enjoy food, not necessarily making it but eating it, so if you have anything good that needs to be taste tested, I’m your guy. I’m very excited to celebrate the Chagim with everyone!
Education Chair: Akiva Berkowitz
Hey guys, welcome to my blurb. As seen above my name is indeed Akiva Berkowitz, and I’m excited to be the Education Chair this year. Originally from Silver Spring, Maryland, I went to the Berman Hebrew Academy and Yeshivat Har Etzion before coming to Penn. I’m currently in the College and hopefully studying Computer Science. When not studying in Rodin 203 or pursuing random events around campus you can find me in Hillel procrastinating or eating the unparalleled food. So excited to be back on campus and part of this unique and friendly community.
