Jewish Girl – Aliyah


(Jewish Girl of the Year Voting Page)

What’s your Mother’s Favorite Dish?
Lamb chops.

Where did you have your most spiritual moment?
The first time I arrived in Jerusalem. At the time, I was 15 and with a group of my best friends. We started the day in Warsaw, in Janusz Korczak’s orphanage where he hid Jewish orphans during the Holocaust. We spontaneously decided to sing Hatikvah there. Right after, we boarded the plane to Israel and drove straight to the Old City of Jerusalem where we cried and laughed and prayed and sang. That whole day was my most spiritual moment.

Which female biblical character do you admire the most? Why?
Appropriate for Purim, I admire Queen Esther. A little chutzpa goes a long way.

What type of hummus do you prefer? (Chunky or Creamy)
Not sure about the chunky or creamy preference, but my favorite chumus comes from Abu Gosh, a village near Jerusalem. It’s the best. Pure beige happiness…
