Adira Friedman of Florida is a dedicated JGU member and student in Bat Mitzvah & Beyond. We interviewed her for an upcoming Spotlight Sunday at Jewish Girls Unite!
In this feature, we will meet a different Jewish girl from around the world each week! Stay tuned for more; and feel free to introduce yourself and start a discussion in the comment section, below!
Q.) What is something most people don’t know about you?
AF: My mom is my Chumash and Jewish studies teacher because there is no Jewish school where I live. We both love it! I get to go at my own speed and I really get to bond with my Mom when I learn!
Q.) What is a dream or goal you have?
AF: In my future I want to discover what unique and special talents Hashem gave me, and use them to make the world a better place! So far, I see that I like photography, art, music and being with friends! I also want to visit Israel and learn in a seminary there! I want to become the best version of ME!
Q.) How has JGU had an impact on your life?
AF: JGU has shown me that I am special! In JGU we all succeed, and there is no need to be shy because JGU is so welcoming of everybody! I love learning, and JGU makes learning fun and interactive!
