Rabba Dina Brawer
JOFA UK Founder
Dina is passionate about education and playing a role in inspiring spiritual growth. She has developed creative community education programmes and was involved in strategic community development. She frequently lectures, writes and occasionally broadcasts to wide and diverse audiences.
Dina’s interest in Orthodox feminism was seeded at the 2003 Kolech conference in Jerusalem and nurtured through JOFA conferences in NY. In 2013 she launched JOFA in the UK as a platform to engage in communal discussions around religion and gender.
JOFA UK has since become a catalyst for both grassroots and institutional change and has led Dina to enroll in an Orthodox semikhah course at Yeshivat Maharat in NY due to graduate in summer of 2018.
