Rachel: What brought you to DC?
Keith: I was an intern here for a semester in college (like how everyone else in this town starts).  I worked for the National Park Service (Yes, I did wear a ‘flat hat’), and moved back here for the summer after college.  Once again, I found myself back in the district for my current job (3rd time back – if you were counting).  I’ve been back for over a year now in my current role.
Rachel: You went on Birthright recently.  What was your favorite memory?
Keith: Israel was unreal.  I’ve always wanted to go, and with the help of birthright, I finally got to see the Jewish State.  My favorite memory was a mix of the Israeli culture and history, and sharing that experience with the people in my group.  Also, the soldiers were inspiring.Rachel: What is your favorite Jewish food?
Keith: My mothers Matzo ball soup. (No, I can’t share the recipe!)Rachel: What is your favorite Jewish holiday?Keith and Brian
Keith: Shabbat, for sure. I love celebrating on Friday nights with friends and/or family.

Rachel: Who is the coolest Jew?
Keith: Would it be out of line to say Ryan Bruan before the suspention?

Rachel: Finish the sentence: When the Jews gather…
Keith: …they dance the hora. Some better than others.
