Shomeric Light: Yetta Chilton

As part of our Hanukkah celebration, we are highlighting different members of our community who have been beacons of light in the past year. 

Today, we're shining a light on Yetta Chilton, a chanicha in the New York Ken. She is from a Shomria family, and is so committed to Mosh! Yetta always brings positive energy and will be in Tzofim Gimmel this summer.
