Hello my name is Isaac Bushewsky, I am the VP finance for the Uottawa JLSA and am looking forward to contributing to the law school experience for every Jewish student. I was born and raised in Edmonton and spent time in Jerusalem at Derech Ohr Samayach and Toronto at York University before coming to Ottawa. Acedemically, I enjoy learning about competition and corporate law and love to oral advocacy and debating. Judaism is central to my identity and I am excited to share my experiences with our vibrant student body.
Ocean EnbarPresidentHometown: Toronto
Hi Everyone! I'm the President at uOttawa's JLSA this year. I’m incredibly excited to find unique ways to enrich the Jewish law student experience this year and bring the community together for a great year. Back in pre-pandemic life, you would have probably run into me at F&S (the local pub) catching up with buddies while diving deep into political and philosophical dilemmas. Academically, I enjoy learning about business and tax law and have been developing a passion for trial advocacy. I also run a few entrepreneurial initiatives on the side and am always looking for new opportunities for collaboration. Feel free to ping me on social media to chat about school, the law, business, or life in general.
Manon HassanCivil Law Rep Hometown: Paris- Ottawa
Hello everyone, I’m Manon i’m 20. I’m Civil Law Rep at JLSA, it’s really important to me to fill this role. A little bit about myself, I moved to Montreal from Paris with my family 5 years ago and now i’m in Ottawa by my self. I grew up in a traditionalist family, and went to a jewish school so I learnt how to read the Torah and Rashi. JLSA is really important to me because i consider it as a second family who share the same values that i was tough as a kid.
