JHP@Penn Student Leader Spotlight: Courtney Lipson

Courtney Lipson is a Sophomore at Penn and serves as JHP@Penn’s Recruitment Chair. She joined JHP as a Freshman and considers it one of the best decisions she has made at Penn.
Coming from a small suburb of New York, Penn seemed like a huge place where it was easy to get lost,” Courtney says. “JHP gave me a community of people who share my beliefs and who I could easily connect with early on in my college experience.”
Courtney particularly values the opportunity to learn more about her Jewish heritage and connect with the Jewish community.
“JHP offers amazing opportunities to learn about Judaism, do community service, network with other Jewish people – and is also a great way to get your Jewish mother to stop nagging you to ‘get more involved!'”
