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.

JWA's current Twersky Education Fellow is Lucy Marshall, a Jewish educator, grassroots organizer, youth worker, and facilitator who is pursuing her MSW at the University of Minnesota and MA in Jewish Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary.
