Limmud South Africa
Co-chair Cape Town
Cape Town
If variety is the spice of life, mine has been a fragrant curry! I studied Architecture which has given me a good eye, expensive taste, and an enjoyment of sukkah building. I worked in the film industry and mastered budgeting, scheduling and standing on my feet for hours and hours. I didn’t realise at the time that I was training for Limmud! I studied Film with a special interest in Scriptwriting, so I love popcorn, binge-watching and occasionally writing stories. I managed a creative educational institution, so I am good at herding cats…more Limmud training in disguise… I also designed curricula and learning pathways…gosh, my whole life seems to have been in preparation for co-chairing Limmud this year! As they say, hindsight is 2020. In my spare time I hang upside down from the tree in my garden as it is good to see things from a different perspective, a Limmud value I treasure. I love spending time on the mountain and cooking for my family, which is blended, like the best garam masala!
