Karra Greenberg is a second year PhD student in Sociology at UCLA. She is currently doing a quantitative and qualitative research project to understand the changing demographics of countries across Europe as well as the American Jewish community, as they particularly relate to individuals marrying later in life, or not at all. She has always enjoyed being an active member of the Jewish community.
