Yehuda

By Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh / Monday, March 9, 2020

Meet Yehuda: There is nobody more ‘Asli’ (genuinely) Tel Avivian than me. I was born on Shabazi Street in Neve Tzedek. I will never leave this neighborhood. My roots are too deep to uproot. My soul will always be entwined with this place. For better or for worse until death do us part.

Meet Louise: Speaking different languages is the most essential skill you can acquire in life. It’s the key that will open every door. If you really want to communicate with the world, you have to speak its language, and that is the reason why I speak 17 of them. I think Arabic should be a mandatory language in the Israeli education system, and Hebrew in the Palestinian one. So many wars start because of miscommunication, so we should all do ourselves a favor and learn a new language. It might save our lives’.

Manny & Yarit

By Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh / Monday, March 9, 2020

Meet Manny and Yarit: When I gave Manny my phone number, I didn’t think anything would come of it. My family is slightly religious (Masoretim) so the issue wasn’t the color but rather the fact that Manny is not Jewish. Love can triumph over everything.

Meet Miriam: If we go out to meet the diversity, the others, we will know, we will feel, we will see the painful and happy eyes, and even if there is an abyss between us, we can build bridges over them… If you miss one piece of the puzzle, the picture will not be complete, so I will not give up any part of my people.

Shmulik

By Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh / Monday, March 9, 2020

Meet SHMULIK:
I am not your typical Ultra-Orthodox Jew. Nine years ago, friends took me to Uman (a pilgrimage site for Breslov Hasidim Jews), where I discovered the teaching of Rabi Nachman. It was like an awakening for me and I became a Breslov. Faith comes from the inside out. I’m your modern hipster Jew.
