Faculty Fast Facts: Professor Shoshana Schechter, '91S, '93BR
Professor Shoshana Schechter '91S, '93BR, is the Director of the Mechina Pathways Basic Jewish Studies Program and a Bible Professor at Stern College for Women. A Stern and Revel alumna, Professor Schechter originally planned to go to Columbia University but decided to attend Stern College after learning in Michlala. She was involved in many leadership opportunities on campus, organizing Operation Torah Shield during the Gulf War, and going to rallies in Washington for Soviet Jewry. Professor Schechter's empowerment did not end there; after participating in many kiruv programs off campus, she realized she did not have to look much harder than the floor above her in her dowm to find women with little to no Jewish background. Rabbi Kanarfogel recruited Professor Schechter to come teach at Stern in 1998 and she soon after began the Mechina Program for Stern students.
