Fav Jewish memory (at IC or elsewhere!): Celebrating Simchat Torah virtually during the remote semester! I got to send out all the ingredients to make your very own mini candy Torah to anyone who wanted to participate as well as collect stories and pictures from people's B'nai mitzvahs! It was an awesome event to put together and to watch everything fall into place!! People remember so much more from their Torah portions at their B'nai mitzvahs than anyone would expect - it was so amazing to read, hear, and share all the stories! It was definitely one of those events that, even though it was virtual, it made me feel extremely close to my Jewish community here at IC and provided a brief sense of normalcy amongst some of the harder days of the pandemic. It's such a fond event to look back on :)
