Alexandra Meisels grew up in New Rochelle, NY and is currently a sophomore at New York University School of Nursing where she is studying to become a nurse practitioner. Alex co-chaired the 2018 College Board and Bowl-a-thon and was the captain of the team that was the 3rd highest fundraising team in 2017. Alex developed a strong attachment to Shaare Zedek when she participated in medical clowning at Shaare Zedek during her gap year in Israel. Alex learned about Shaare Zedek’s College Bowl-a-thon from her sister, Samantha, who co-chaired the event in 2016 and was honored at the 2017 Shaare Zedek Dinner.

It is our pleasure to present Alexandra with the Chesed Leadership Award in recognition of her enthusiasm and dedication on behalf of Shaare Zedek.
