Rachel: What brought you to DC?
Jolie: No one asked me to be Jewish Girl of the Week when I lived in Alexandria…
No, but really, I moved to the area from Baltimore to start my career as a graphic designer, and the change of scenery was nice as well.
Rachel: What’s your favorite thing about DC?
Jolie: There’s always something to do. Sometimes too much! I enjoy anything involving live music and DC never lets me down. I find myself at 9:30 club frequently.
Rachel: We heard you play the bass guitar. Could you tell us more about that?
Jolie: I play the bass guitar, I’ve been in two bands in the past but am not in one at the moment. I’d love to start a new band. I think being in a bluegrass band would be really fun!
Rachel: What’s your favorite way to spend Shabbat?
Jolie: My favorite way to spend Shabbat is at Sixth & I with my friends, singing songs and dodging flying challah.
Rachel: What is your favorite Jewish holiday?
Jolie: I like all of the ones where I get to eat. And let’s not forget eating while reclining! Passover might take the cake…err…flourless cake.
Rachel: Who is the coolest Jew?
Jolie: Mike Gordon, the bassist for Phish.
Rachel: Finish the sentence: When the Jews gather…
Jolie: …someone’s getting set up.
