Author: Madeline Israel
Madeline Israel, from Westchester, New York, considers being Israeli and Jewish to be a pivotal part of her identity. She grew up in a culturally Jewish home and goes to Israel often to visit her family. On October 7, she was on a gap year in Israel, before enrolling in college at the University of Pennsylvania. She considers herself to be a storyteller — she is a nationally accomplished photographer, and enjoys writing in her free time.
