Roy Rivers (Shan He) – Columnist
Jesse Arm – Writer
Jesse Arm, a freshman at the University of Michigan, is interested in studying public policy and sees writing as an ideal outlet for driving thought and emotion. His recent criticism of the United Synagogue Youth’s interpretation of interfaith relationships was published in the Times of Israel and quickly ignited a nationwide debate on the matter. What troubles Arm is a perceived unwillingness among students to research current events. “Apathy toward what goes on in the administration and student leadership groups is a sad reality that we should seriously combat,” he says. In his time here at the Review, Arm hopes to promote a higher level of awareness and participation among students when it comes to current events.
