Rachel: What brought you to DC?
Tanya: I moved out from Colorado for my job.  So far, I really love DC.  It is incredible to be part of such a passionate atmosphere.  However, I do miss the West.  Nothing beats the mountains, the Broncos, and of course the original Chipotle.

Rachel: What’s your favorite thing about the DC Jewish community?
Tanya: My favorite thing about the DC Jewish community is how welcoming the individuals are.  I never had to worry about finding my place in DC.  I have been lucky to have had so many automatic friends.

Rachel: What’s your favorite Jewish food?
Tanya: I would say borscht, but that doesn’t seem very lady like, so I will go with challah.

Pic 2Rachel: What is your favorite Jewish holiday?
Tanya: Purim, because I am good at themed parties and groggers.

Rachel: Who is the coolest Jew?
Tanya: I cannot in good conscience choose between the Franco brothers.

Rachel: Finish the sentence: When the Jews gather…
Tanya: They attend the Sukkot Luncheon at the RAC on September 24 at noon.  Haha, but really…see you there!
