Jewish Girl – Jenna

(Jewish Girl of the Year Voting Page)

Jenna on why she should be Jewish Girl of the Year:

I should be Jewish Girl of the Year because I think the people who run GTJ are awesome and I’m going to do my best to help them raise some more money so the gathering can continue!

You’re pretty new around these parts. What’s your favorite part of being a Jewess in DC?
It’s so easy to meet people! I have attended a lot of Jewish events and made friends that made the transition into DC really easy.

You’ve completed triathlons, half marathons, and more and that’s very impressive! If you could challenge one famous Jew to a race, who would it be?
Hmm….tough question.  Since I am a true NY sports fan, I’d have to say Amare Stoudemire on the Knicks – does he count as being Jewish?

If you won a free plane ticket and could leave today, where would you go?
I would definitely be off to Italy – I lived there for four months and am dying to go back!

We’ve seen you around a lot at 6th and I. What do you like to do there?
I go to the café nights on Monday and the running club as much as I can – the people are really fun and I have even reconnected with some friends from my past that I didn’t even know were in DC.

Hummus or Babaganoush?
Definitely babaganoush!

What do you love most about Gather the Jews?
It is a great way to find out what is going on in D.C. and meet new people…AND I really like one of their promoters Abby Widom

      Amare Stoudemire definitely counts as being Jewish. See Wikipedia.

      Jewish background

      Stoudemire’s mother has “mentioned that somewhere back in her lineage there might be some Jewish roots”.[24] In an interview, Stoudemire said, “I have been aware since my youth that I am a Hebrew through my mother, and that is something that has played a subtle but important role in my development.” He visited Israel in 2010, and said he is “so excited to be here, see all the important historical sites, learn Hebrew and to get a better understanding of my heritage.”[25][26][27][28]
