I love learning — Jewish and otherwise. If I had a superpower, it would be infinite brain capacity to retain all knowledge. Yet, my passion for Jewish learning was nearly quashed by the rigid way it was taught in the United Kingdom’s Jewish education system. I didn’t want to go to school and hear a teacher or Rabbi drone on about the laws I must follow or books I must read. There was only one way to engage with Jewish learning, or else as they say, “the highway.” As an adult, I found another way. I engage in Judaism because it’s dynamic and community led. It provides opportunities and tools for my peers to lead their own learning sessions.
