Jewish Girl of the Week – Jordy

NEW QUESTION:  “Why should you be Jewish Girl of the Year?”
To the  tune of ” Fresh Prince of Bel Air”

Now this is the story all about how
I should be GTJ’s Jewish girl of the year
And I’d like to take a minute just sit right there
I’ll tell you how I’ll become the girl of the year in your game called Ga-Ther

In the Moishe House is where I reside,
Here On the weekends and evenings I show my Jewish pride,
chillin out maxin relaxin all cool
And making some shabbos onegs and delicious gruel
When a couple of community members who are lookin around
For a place to chill out, meet Jews and just hang out
Come to Moishe House in my neighborhood
I had one little event and Aaron Wolf was proud,
He said “You’re building community and that’s awe-some, you should be crowned girl of the year cuz you’re number one”

I work at JPDS to teach little kids
Science class is “fresh” and I teach the Jews a lot of cool things
If anything, I could say that this job was great
But I thought yeah thats right, enriching Jewish minds is what I like

I teach at Adas Israel for the fifth grade,
And I daven with all the minyans around DC
Looked at DC, I am really proud
That’s why for next year, I decided to stick around

You have openings for your house?  What are the requirements to live in Moishe House?
Yup! We have two openings at Moishe House Montgomery County (mhmoco.org). To be a Moishketeer, you should want to live in a Kosher group house with creative and outgoing people, and be excited to engage and get funding to create/lead programs. All applicants (and everyone else who is reading this–thanks, Uncle Bob) is encouraged to come and visit our spacious, warm home. We’ll even give you tea, a beer, and a spot in our hammock (if I’m not currently occupying it).

What are your favorite Moishe House events?
Moishe House is great because we can host all types of fun things both in our house and around the area while getting to hang out with great people. Usually my favorite types of events involve free [kosher] food or are at our house (because afterward I can just go to bed) – like our Shabbat dinners, sukkot mysticism discussions, or challah baking and Rosh Hashana greeting card making.  I have to say my favorite event was a Sunday afternoon picnic on the national mall during the Cherry Blossom festival. The lumberjack event at our house last winter was a also huge hit – people came in flannels and ‘Tims’ and chopped wood to be used in our Moishe House for an eternity of fires.

If you could add an 11th commandment, what would it be?
Thou shall do something spontaneous spontaneously.

Who is your favorite roommate?!
Can a  mother say which of her children is her favorite? Not out loud anyway. But really, I love all of my roommates and am so lucky to have the chance to  live and laugh with Uri, Rachael, Shelly, and Leana and excited to see who will occupy our two open spots.

Where’s Waldo?

Lost in Dupont Circle, because like the rest of us, he is not accustomed to traffic circles.

Where can we find you on a Friday night?
Exploring the Jewish DC scene, but usually at Moishe House, Tikkun Leil Shabbat, or Adas Israel.

Your favorite misperception as a kid?
I used to think that when someone crossed their eyes, that their eyeballs were switching places behind their brain.
