Our Leadership


Destiny Rose Murphy (she/her or they/them) is serving as president of Kehillah for 2021-2022. She is a 3L (final year student) at Yale Law School where she focuses on philosophy of punishment, and from which she is hoping to become a law professor. She was raised in Texas and is a tea-fiend, a cross-stitcher, an aspiring gym rat, and a huge fan of any Jewish excuse to get people together and enjoy food, drinks, and each other.

Jenna (she/her) is a board member of Kehillah. She is a 3rd year in the MD/PhD program beginning her PhD in Genetics in the Sözen lab. Her research is in early embryonic development and her clinical interest is OB/GYN. She is from Haverford, PA and when she’s not in the lab or clinic she enjoys cycling on her peloton, playing board games, sailing, and hosting Shabbat dinners with her husband.
