Jewish Girl – Yael and Jane

Jane and Yael(Jewish Girl of the Year Voting Page)

Jane and Yael on why they should be Jewish Girl(s) of the Year?
“You should vote for the Frozen Chosen because it’s about time Alaska was known for something else in the DC area. We’re committed to spreading our Jewish spirit all across the U.S., from the far west to the east. Besides, how do you pass up a 2 for 1 deal?”

How did you convince GTJ to have 2 Girls of the Week at once?!
Jane: I think they were trying to prove to the D.C. Community that there is more than 1 Jew in the State of Alaska.
Yael: I think it was a couple of convincing shayna punims.

I thought that the only things in Alaska were Eskimos and Sarah Palin, there are Jews too?!
Yael: And a great view of Russia! Actually, there is a strong Jewish community in Anchorage, I’ve heard us called Jewskimos.
Jane: I prefer the term ”Frozen Chosen”… and yes we sell t-shirts that say that too. They are available for purchase online.

What do you miss most from Alaska?
Yael: Mountains, Midnight sun, Moose’s tooth pizza
Jane: Being able to drink water from the tap, Bar scene, Skiing, My family, and Fishing!!!
Yael: I’m glad you like to fish because I like to eat fish. Nothing beats wild Alaskan salmon, other than wild Alaskan salmon that Jane caught and smoked herself.
Jane: I can’t take all the credit for that salmon… it’s my dad’s recipe!

What is the best part of DC, besides Gather the Jews?
Jane: Having Jewish friends other than Yael
Yael: I grew up 3,000 miles from my nearest relative so its nice having extended family nearby.

Jane and YaelWhat is your favorite snowcone flavor?
Yael: Anything but yellow.
Jane: I feel like when you grow up in Alaska you learn not to eat snow of any kind… but you might not know that Alaska has the highest consumption of ice cream per capita out of any other state in the U.S., Matanuska Maid Dairy is the best!
Yael: Mmm, ice cream…who eats snowcones?

Since you guys are best friends and attached at the hip, in order to take one of you out for dinner does the other have to approve/join/or doesn’t matter?
Yael: I always approve of Jane’s choices.
Jane: Yael, I know that’s a lie, I don’t even approve of my own choices. And for anyone trying to take Yael out…. You do have to go through me.

What will you do now that this prestigious crowns have been bestowed upon you?
Yael: Go to Disneyworld.
Jane: I might just go get coffee or something….Yael? Want to come?
Yael: Of course :)

BTW in the first photo, their hands are the maps of Alaska.
