Jewish Guy – Eddie

Jewish Guy - Eddie

If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be and why?
Worldly. I love to travel and I enjoy exploring new places locally and internationally. My last trip was to Armenia which was amazing – it’s a beautiful country with an extremely rich history.

What do you miss most about California?
The beach and a good burrito. Overall, DC is a great place to live, but this oceanless city is lacking in the Mexican food department.

What’s the biggest misconception about lawyers?
Where do I even begin….Lawyers are often portrayed as greedy, sneaky, or self-serving. But the truth is that a vast majority of lawyers are individuals committed to the furtherance of justice. The lawyers I know joined the profession not only because it was a good career path but also because it is a way to help others and make a difference. 

What do you like most about being a member of the AJC?
The American Jewish Committee (AJC) is an extremely dynamic organization. Amongst other things, AJC promotes pluralism and works to create bridges of understanding between Jewish communities and other religious and ethnic communities in the United States and abroad. AJC has been a tireless advocate for the Jewish people and has been at the forefront of the fight against anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry and intolerance.

What is your favorite memory of Hanukkahs past?
Homemade latkes and jelly donuts. What’s better than deep fried potatoes and donuts? 

If you were in the “Mr. America” talent competition, what would your talent be?
I’ve got a few. I can easily jump onto a 54” box and do a standing front flip. I can put a whole chicken wing in my mouth and pull out only the bone. Oh, and I can also juggle three of almost anything you can hand me.
