Alex Ben-YosefCo-PresidentHometown: Cresskill, New Jersey
During my time at NYU as an undergrad, I strived to search for a community where I felt I belonged. As a former member of Tamid, an alumni of AEPi and a supporter of pro-Israel advocacy groups on campus, Jewish life was my calling. When I arrived at law school, I strived to continue that relationship. With that said, I look forward to continuing my involvement with the Jewish community by serving as a JLSA Co-President!
Marissa CohenTreasurerHometown: Cooper City, FL
Hi! My name is Marissa Cohen, I graduated from Tulane University for undergrad, and I'm a 2L at Cardozo School of Law. I think that in a new school or environment, Jewish culture is so important to help unite people and help them make new friends. JLSA is the perfect organization to continue bringing Jewish people together. I'm excited to continue being a part of the board this year to enhance the Jewish community at Cardozo.

Justin GendlerCo-PresidentHometown: Ft. Lauderdale, FL
I'm Justin Gendler, a rising 3L from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For me, starting law school meant moving to a new state where I didn't know many people. Jewish student groups like JLSA have been key in making my transition a smooth one. As Co-President of JLSA at Cardozo, I'm committed to building a sense of community at our school and helping other students feel welcome.
