Hi everyone! I am Tova Liebert, I am 20 years old, I went to Hasmonean High School, then to MMY seminary in Israel and am now studying English at Kings College London with the hopes of being a high school English teacher.
I would describe myself as an idealist; someone passionate to change the world, and I am particularly passionate about enriching the lives of the youth – as firstly, they are our future, but more fundamentally, I believe the groundwork for a solid foundation, both religiously and generally, must begin during childhood or the teenage years.
As youth director, I feel it incumbent upon me to show the youth that being frum is fun, but also aim to be there as an older sister figure to help them with anything they need and talk through their hopes and fears. I am thoroughly enjoying my experience as a Youth Director with Shira so far!
Hi all! My name is Shira Silber, and I am the youth director of Dunstan Road shul, alongside my colleague Tova Liebert.
Let me tell you a bit about myself.
I am a university student studying speech and language therapy. I attended Hasmonean high school and later took a gap year in Israel which was a year full of enjoyment and one I will never forget.
My hobbies are ice skating, singing, drama, exploring nature and a love for animals. I started as a youth director last year and I have been so privileged to get to know the youth well. I have enjoyed building a strong relationship with the youth of warmth and trust and creating a good positive atmosphere during our sessions. I look forward to the year ahead and continuing to meet new youth.
