Gould practices Judaism, and is active in the Conservative Jewish youth group USY (he was president of his local USY synagogue chapter during his senior year of high school). He participated in Nativ, a gap year program, where he spent ten months living in Israel, including time in the Negev desert, teaching English to elementary school children.[1][2][3][4]
