New Voices has been proudly run by the young and inexperienced for over 40 years. Our editor in chief is always a recent college graduate, while the rest of the writing, editing, janitorial work, etc. is done entirely by college students.
David A.M. Wilensky
Editor in Chief, New Voices
Executive Director, Jewish Student Press Service
David accidentally copy edited something in the office of his college newspaper one night during freshman year. Four years later he stumbled out of the office, surprised to discover there’d been an entire campus beyond those four walls that whole time. Now they pay him the big bucks to edit this thing.

Lex is a Senior at Brown University concentrating in Judaic Studies (at Brown they’ve moved beyond majors to “concentrations”). He covered the Providence Friar college basketball team for the AP but was surprised to learn that there isn’t much Jewish content to discuss in the Big East. So now Lex is at New Voices. He’s also a Scorpio.
Arts & Culture Editor
John is completing his final year in communication theory and philosophy at a private Catholic college in West Michigan. His perfect date is April 25, because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.
H.B. “Young Hannah” Rubin
Deputy Blog Editor
Young Hannah is a senior at Wesleyan University studying writing, theory and the theory of writing – at least according to Facebook. She is a former Forward summer fellow and writes for Hermes, Wesleyan’s magazine of political, critical and creative thought.
