Rudy Rochman Every day, Rudy Rochman wakes up to the faces of Israeli leaders like Theodor Herzl and Golda Meir looking down at him from their frames on his bedroom walls. Rochman served as president of Students Supporting Israel (SSI), one of Columbia University’s clubs, before graduating in May. Having spent his early years in France and moving to the United States as a child, Rochman says he went through an identity crisis trying to introduce himself and his story to new people. That crisis turned him into an ardent Zionist, prompting him to enlist in the Israel Defense Forces. After serving as a paratrooper, he went on to enroll at Columbia University, which he chose in part for its tense atmosphere around the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. How did that go? What did SSI accomplish and where is Rudy going now?
