I would vote for hadash because i agree with that viewpoint the most. after watching all the videos that viewpoint just makes the most sense to me.
I did this portion with Ryan who I was friends with on the trip. On the trip we often spoke about how men and women face different obstacles and what can be done to fix this. We did the Torah portion Parshat Pinchas, which was about five daughters, Mahlah, Noa, Holga, Milcah, and Tirza, holding true to their own beliefs and using them to fight against the face of oppression. Against all odds they were able to defeat their oppressors and get God and the elders on theirs side. I really learned from this portion because it reminded me to always be strong in my morals, beliefs, and convictions. If I am not strong, who will do it for me? These women have so much bravery and so much power and I admire them so much for it. Ryan and I discussed that the only way men and women will ever be treated equally is if we, as women, step up and don't let ourselves get pushed around and stepped on. We need to have pride in ourselves and our people and that is the only way we will ever really be able to succeed and progress.

1. My Hebrew Name is Batiah Havah (Betty Eva) 2. The translation is Daughter of G-d, First Daughter of G-d. 3. I was given these names after two of my great grandmothers, Betty and Eva, on my fathers side. 4. I connect with these names because they are apart of who am I. I have known them and their meaning for most of my life. I went to a Jewish preschool and I remember learning the names very early on in life because of that. Though I never got to meet my great grandmothers I have been told stories about them time and time again and I feel my names help me to connect to my ancestors.
We made Latkes! The recipe is a family recipe passed down at least three generations now! You start with 4 pounds of russet potatoes and four medium red potatoes then you finely grate them all then add one medium white onion also grated and one box of Latke mix plus a half a teaspoon of baking powder three eggs salt and pepper to taste plus garlic powder and then put it in canola oil for frying.
I have been making latkes with my mom and grandma for as long as I can remember and it is one of my favorite holiday memories. I know I will pass this recipe along for generations to come.
In this photo is myself and my mom. Shabbat to me means a time to set aside to be with family and friends and to appreciate all that you have.

I collect quotes that I go back to when I am down or upset or mad. They focus me and make me put things into perspective. I have done this for years without much thought as to why I was doing this other then it made me feel good when I needed it too. Some of these are quotes from Rabbis like, ”You are not required to complete the task, yet you are not free to withdraw from it.” - Rabbi Tarfon. Others from one of my favorite poets, Rumi, who is afghani, “Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment; cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment is intuition.” And some I made up and never forgotten, “If randomness had wings it would fly like a dodo bird.” I have hundreds of quotes from all walks of life that I repeat them to myself over and over again, particularly the ones that strike me with insight and clarity. This passage about Cyclicalism, about life being more than one-dimensional, has already resonated with me, and I have saved some excerpts of it into my notebook along with my other quotes. I hope to be able come back to it when I need it most for some clarity in this world.
