Liana Maza
Liana, a proud graduate of RPRY's Class of 2015, recalls her time at the school with deep fondness. From pulling up to Torah Bowl competitions in the ''Rabbi M Mobile” to her days on the basketball court (Go Panthers!) Liana's RPRY years were marked by a nurturing environment and immense educational and social growth. Following her time at RPRY, Liana went on to attend Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School and Shaalvim for Women. 
Currently, Liana is a graduating senior at Cornell University where she is studying biology with a focus on global health and health policy in pursuit of a future career in medicine. While at Cornell she has been active in all areas of Jewish student life, including serving on board positions with Kedma (the orthodox minyan) and the Center for Jewish Living. She has been a staunch advocate for Israel policy in the face of an intense anti-Israel atmosphere and anti-semitism on her college campus and currently serves as a captain for Cornellians for Israel where she has been active in combating BDS referendums and educating Cornellians on the importance of voting against BDS. Her leadership for Israel and Jewish identification at Cornell has garnered attention from national media outlets as she has been interviewed on ABC news and was the feature of an ABC News segment on Anti-Semitism at Cornell.
Liana credits her RPRY education as a main source for her religious values and her passion for Am Yisrael and Medinat Yisrael. She further feels that the well-rounded education she received at RPRY, covering both religious and secular studies, laid a solid groundwork for her achievements as an honors student in high school and a finalist in the Chidon Hatanach competition.
Liana is passionate about learning Torah and representing her Torah values in a positive light. She also enjoys serving as executive social media manager for the Avi Maza Orchestra Instagram. She has lived in Highland Park her whole life and comes from a family that includes her parents Avi and Lauren Maza, her brother Seth, his wife Orlee, and her sister Jessica. She enjoys davening at her family shul, Congregation Ahavas Achim, where she served as a regular youth leader during her high school years.
Liana is looking forward to continuing to support RPRY which has enriched her life so much throughout her formative years and beyond.
