Maital Ledder from Israel is a writer, health enthusiast, and dedicated JGU member and leader.  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 are you passionate about, and why?

ML: I’m passionate about so many things.  I love writing and expressing my feelings on paper and I devour good books for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love helping other people and watching them light up. I love being with my family and friends and playing with my baby brother. If I’d write all of the things I’m passionate about there wouldn’t be any more room on this page!

Q.) Who is a role model of yours and how do you want to emulate her?

ML:  My role model would definitely be my mother. I’d like to emulate her by doing chessed, making people feel good and caring for each and every person! 

Q.) What is something you love about JGU?

ML:  JGU is like a safe, warm, happy family. It’s as simple as that. They make everyone, and I mean everyone, feel welcome and needed.  JGU is an outlet for each and every girl to help her use her talents and feel good.
