I am a senior at Solomon Schechter School of Westchester, and live in New Rochelle, NY, a suburb of NYC. I am Sephardi and an egalitarian Jew. I was born in London, and moved to the US when I was nine. I work with Keshet on their teen programming, and I’m a writer for my school newspaper, The Lion’s Roar. I am an LGBTQ activist and a motivational speaker. During the summer, I worked as a specialist at Camp Ramah Nyack. My hobbies include reading, watching TV, and playing with my dog. I applied to jGirls+ because I love building communities that uplift each other, and jGirls+ provides a way for Jewish girls to do that.
“Breaking down that barrier is a necessary step for the full liberation of Jewish women.”
When faced with a place of such tormented and haunting history, you may find strength and pride in the miracle that is the present.
"I, too, could still be a proud, trans, Jewish girl, and wear tallit and tefillin."
