Co-Director Aish Chaim (Aish Philadelphia)
Gevura grew up with a Jewish “rags to riches” story. She wasn’t given a Hebrew name. She dropped out of Hebrew school at a young age because it was boring and irrelevant, no bat mitzvah, no synagogue. Her parents couldn’t persuade her to stay in BBYO. She dropped out of Jewish life until her evangelical Christian Cheerleading coach in Georgia gave her detention for not coming with the rest of the team to church. She started wondering why being Jewish mattered at all and landed in Israel, making aliyah, marrying a Rabbi, and deciding as an adult that Judaism might have more to offer than bagels and dreidels. Since engaging in outreach full time, she has given classes in 6 countries, many states across the US, and for diverse audiences ranging from the Lion of Judah Conference, NCSY Shabbatons, Hadassah, Women’s Philanthropy, Momentum, and for a variety of Kiruv organizations as a speaker for Mikvah USA.
