My Hebrew name

I have finally picked out a hebrew name for myself. It's Abira (pronounced ah BEE ra). And it means bravery and strength.

I know, cliche, right. Of all the beautiful images out there like fagale (meaning little song bird), I chose something super standard like strength and bravery.

The thing is, strnegth and bravery are what we need in every part of life. We need it in love, we need it in the classroom, on the blacktop, at the gym. We need strength to get through everything and strength requires bravery.

Anyway, that is neither here nor there. Rabbi Foreman told me to pick a hebrew name for myself and he will perform a naming ceremony for me.

Abira. Strength and Bravery.
