Breaking Safely Through The Glass Ceiling

Growing up always with a female figure as the breadwinner and head of the household, the concept of female inequality was never anywhere in my mind. To me truly that did not exist. Having strong female role models shaped my life and made me the person I am today, a strong and ultra- independent female. I never really saw much that glass ceiling as much of an obstacle because of the examples in my life, but being in the workplace for the past seven years has taught me a lot about how the world works.

Birthright During Operation Cast Lead

I went on Birthright during the winter of 2009-10: the time of Operation Cast Lead, and amid the elections for Prime Minister.

We saw the beauty of Israel, and enjoyed the fun most students did, but there was still something very different about that trip. My mother was anxious, and upset that I had still decided to go.

Watching Frankenstorm From Inside Moishe House

Frankenstorm Sandy brought us New Yorkers a new perception of this city, teaching us about a “New York City is a city that can actually sleep.” This new New York is a city that is under water. It suffered over 30 casualties, the evacuation of 400,000-plus people, the loss of water and electricity.
