HDS communications reached out to our 2022 graduating students to hear from them in their own words about their experiences at HDS, the people who've helped and inspired them along their grad school journeys, and their plans for the future.

Memorable Moment

I will always remember helping to build and decorate the HDS sukkah this year, a worthwhile comedy of errors that led to beautiful evenings shared with friends under a crisp September sky.

Favorite Class or Professor 

Two classes from Professor Charles Hallisey's scripture series, "Buddhist Narrative and Story Literature" and "The Lotus Sutra," indelibly transformed the way I read and think.

Message of Thanks

I'm in awe of my brilliant classmates. Thank you for inspiring me and for being so much fun. I hope to continue to learn from you for many years to come.

I'm grateful for the excellent mentorship I received in field placements throughout my three years at HDS. Thank you Rabbi Liza Stern, Stef Branca, Rev. Mary Martha Thiel, and Dr. Wesley Wildman.
