Hi! My name is Cara Marantz, and I am a 17-year-old senior from Chicago, Illinois. When I am not working with jGirls+, you can find me being an active member of my community. I am on my school’s varsity volleyball team, on the executive board of March for Our Lives Chicago, and the president of my synagogue’s youth group. I love helping to make a change in the world around me and hopefully create a better future for the generations to come. I’m confident that with jGirls+, young Jewish females like myself will have a platform to amplify their voices and be able to express whatever they feel, and I am so happy to be a part of it.

No More Goodbyes
"We say, 'not one more,' but then one more happens. People ask what they can do. You can vote. You can protest."
The Microscope Effect
"Since my father is a rabbi, some congregants have always made my life their business. They believed they knew me, even if we rarely spoke."
