In 2007, Hillel Ofek graduated magna cum laude from Kenyon College. He was awarded Highest Honors for his thesis on the political philosophy of Edmund Burke.
Prior to his arrival at UT, Hillel spent several years working in Washington, D.C. He was a researcher for Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Charles Krauthammer from 2007-2008; a researcher and writer for a corporate PR firm, Berman and Company, from 2008-2009; and a founding editor at the public-policy quarterly, National Affairs, from 2009-2010.
Hillel is the Executive Director of Pro Musica Hebraica, a nonprofit devoted to presenting Jewish classical music--much of it lost or forgotten--in a concert hall setting.
