About the Fellowship

The Twersky Education Fellowship is named for Natalia Twersky, a champion of Jewish education and the mother of JWA's founding executive director, Gail Twersky Reimer. Since 1996, JWA has offered globally recognized teaching resources, including lesson plans, encyclopedia entries, and in-depth articles highlighting Jewish women's lives and voices. The Twersky Education Fellow is dedicated to making these resources accessible to all, including teachers and learners at every stage of life. Michaela Brown, a rabbinical student at Hebrew College in Newton Centre, MA, is serving as the inaugural Twersky Education Fellow for the 2019-2020 year. Contact us for more information about future Fellowship opportunities.
