Nadav Warszawski

VP for the Mid-Atlantic

Nadav Warszawski (he/him) is a rising senior studying Cognitive Science and Philosophy at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Born and raised in a multicultural, Jewish household in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, Nadav was raised with tools to connect with others across identities. Nadav attended an extra-curricular Hebrew school at his synagogue, a Conservative congregation in South Jersey, that brought him to Israel in 2018. He later took part in Young Judea’s year Course, a gap year in Israel, which took him into the West Bank and to other communities on the periphery. As result of the exposure to such a wide diversity of narratives and experiences, Nadav was transformed from the synagogue-fashioned AIPAC summit attendee of his high school years into the naturally-sculpted JStreet activist he continues to grow as today. In fact, within a month of arriving at Rutgers University, Nadav connected with JStreet in NYC and brought 3 friends with him to a leadership workshop at the JStreet WeWork office in downtown Manhattan. Since then, Nadav has co-founded Peace Is Possible, an Israel-Palestine dialogue club at Rutgers University, and officially established JStreetU at Rutgers University. Dialogue and Progressive activism are not easy on Rutgers campus, but despite setbacks across various identity communities, Nadav has worked hard to build critical foundations to get long-term, grassroots support for progressive University policy at Rutgers, effect change through dialogue, and rally community members for meaningful political action. Nadav has attended events and visited JStreetU at 3 other universities in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
