What is your most memorable Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh event?

When my husband and I were Co-Chairs for the 2017 Israel Your Way Mission. It was his first visit to Israel, and my first visit as an adult (I had only been on Birthright before). We had an incredible group on that trip, with so many insightful, thoughtful discussions. Every element came together perfectly on that trip to create an inspiring and memorable experience.

If you could invite any famous Jewish person to your Shabbat table, who would it be (living or deceased)?

Oh, Ruth Bader Ginsburg for sure. I would probably spend most of the time fawning over her, and then we’d talk some opera.

If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

The sloth that lives at the National Aviary. Specifically that sloth. That sloth has a good life. Or maybe Fiona the baby hippo. I am picking cute animals with cushy lifestyles here.
