    Synopsis:

    Have you ever felt unequal to the task of giving a d'var Torah in public? In response to this type of widely-held insecurity, a unique and ambitious program, The Susi Bradfield Women Educators Fellowships, was developed in London with the aim of transforming the perception of women's role in Jewish learning and creating a cadre of well-trained women educators. This session will examine the impact of the Bradfield program on the adult education scene in London, and on the individual women who have participated in the program, exploring the transformative effects of the program on the graduates, their families, students and communities in order to identify the elements that could usefully and effectively be replicated in our communities.
