An event about the world of court reporting and stenography will take place in Crown Heights on February 17 at the Jewish Children’s Museum.
The informative evening will feature two Lubavitch women who are professionals in the field, who will be giving insights into this exciting profession and a glimpse into the world of court reporting and captioning.
The event will be an evening of networking and camaraderie, joined by many of New York’s 75 Frum court reporters, and will include addresses from Rivka Teich, a federal official and court reporter for over 19 years, and Ricky Woonteiler, a CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation, also known as closed captioning), provider.
“The event is not to be missed by anyone interested in learning more about the world of Court Reporting and Stenography,” Devora Hackner, one of the organizers, said.
Teich will discuss the advantages and importance of being a court reporter, due to its flexibility in schedule, ideal for a Frum person, especially a working mother.
She will share stories and explain how the person that makes the record is vital to any legal proceeding.
Woonteiler will be part of a special Q&A panel for students and those wanting to learn about what other avenues the skill of court reporting can lead to.
The event will also feature live captions in English with simultaneous Hebrew translation.
“We invite everyone to come, be educated, and see the many opportunities in this field,” organizers said.
Schools which provide training in the court reporting field will be featured in the vendor hall, including TTI, a frum online school.
