Rachel: What brought you to DC?
Marc: I took two trips to D.C. in High School, one was the Religious Action Center and one was through the ADL/U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. During these trips, I got my first taste of this city and loved it ever since.
Rachel: You’re involved in a few different Jewish organizations around town. What are some of your favorite events to go to?
Marc: My favorite event happened when I had the opportunity to participate in JUFJ Jeremiah Fellowship last year. We had many wonderful speakers and events, but the one that I will always remember is when we got a walking tour of historic U street starting at Ben’s Chili Bowl and ending at the African-American Civil War Memorial. I love that this city has so much history on every block.
Rachel: We heard you’re on the 2239 Steering Committee. Could you tell us more about that?
Marc: I am honored to get to help out with 2239. Going to Metro Minyan is a both fun and meaningful. It reminds me a lot of my summers up at OSRUI, an overnight camp, except with much better food and drinks.
Rachel: What’s your favorite way to spend Shabbat?
Marc: A big Shabbat potluck dinner at my house.
Rachel: What is your favorite Jewish food?
Marc: My mother’s noodle kugel, of course.
Rachel: Who is the coolest Jew?
Marc: A tie between Sandy Koufax and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Rachel: Finish the sentence: When the Jews gather…
Marc: …we eat!
