Yaffy Newman is a born South Floridian currently residing in Jerusalem with her Israeli husband. She is a proud Jew of color who shares about her lived experience in order to break down stigmas and build bridges of understanding. Yaffy is currently studying computer science, loves to read in her free time and is passionate about fashion.
In this episode, we talk about Yaffy’s important work educating people (particularly the Orthodox Jewish community) on racism. One really important quote that we discuss is “nice does not equal not racist”. It is imperative that we educate ourselves and step out of our comfort zones to really create internal change.
