Linoy Yechieli, Hillel’s Israel Fellow, was born and raised in Israel. Since she bought her first guitar, she has been writing songs and performing with her original music. In 2016 she graduated from the Open University with a BA in Psychology and Music. Following her passion for music, and the desire to help others, she attended Levinsky College of Education, graduating with a M.A in Music Therapy in 2018. For the past five years she has been working in the music and music therapy field with diverse populations in different ages, developing projects to encourage inclusion and social equality in Israel.
Linoy is very interested in Philosophy and actively explores her Jewish identity in all aspects from a very young age. She is coming to PDX Hillel to continue this Journey and she is looking for people from the Portland community who feel the same calling for jewish-identity-exploration and are willing to share their own unique stories along the way
