A Look Back with Orly Olbum

Orly Olbum celebrates the 8 year anniversary of her Bat Mitzvah this month by reflecting back on her D’var Torah. Orly shared with us her original reflection from her Bat Mitzvah, and wrote a new one to examine how the portion relates to her life today. Thanks for sharing, Orly! Yasher Koach! 

Orly Olbum is a junior majoring in Statistics. She is from Pittsburgh, PA.
