Jackie: What brought you to DC?
Like many other recent college graduates, I moved to DC in the hopes of finding a job. Prior to moving out to DC, I spent several summers interning here, and felt that the best hope of employment was located in the nation’s capital.
Jackie: Can you tell us about your work with Republican Jewish Coalition?
I am the Grassroots Coordinator in our National office. Most of my time is spent accelerating the growth of our national membership around the country as well as programming for outreach events. Another aspect of my job is connecting college students and young professionals with our organization. As a perk, I get to meet several leading politicians and influential Jews.
Jackie: Where is your favorite place to hang out in the city?
If it’s not Sunday during football season and I’m not watching my Green Bay Packers, then I love going to this little speakeasy called Harold Black in eastern market. Great ambiance, great conversation, and great whiskey!
Jackie: Who is your favorite Jew?
Hands down, Andy Samberg. He is hilarious and adorable! If you have not seen his new show Brooklyn 99 you are seriously missing out!
Jackie: How do you like to spend Shabbat?
I spend my Shabbat’s differently every week. Sometimes it is spent in services, sometimes it is spent at a Shabbat dinner with friends and family. However, a lot of the time, it is spent with me attempting to be an adult and cook for myself, failing, and just enjoy a bottle of manischewitz.
Finish the sentence: When the Jews gather…
Oh what a time will be had!
