Mrs. Shaindy Jacobson, a noted educator and lecturer in Crown Heights, will be heading the new women’s branch of the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI), COLlive was told.
Jacobson, who has delivered talks on spirituality, feminism and Judaism around the globe, is joining the ranks of the adult education academy from the Associated Beth Rivkah Schools’ Division of Higher Learning.
Her first mission will be launching the Rosh Chodesh Society (RCS) and build partnerships with Chabad Shluchos to help them “empower Jewish women to lead the way to a global spiritual revolution.”
The Rosh Chodesh Society is gearing up for the launch of its newest course, “Heroines of the Bible: Her Story ? My Story.”
Jacobson, who is married to best-selling author Rabbi Simon Jacobson, says her philosophy and passion are fueled by the Rebbe‘s emphatic directive to provide comprehensive Torah education to girls and women, especially in the realm of Chassidus.
“The shluchos have the greatest zechus in the world [to be on the frontlines providing this education],” Jacobson told COLlive.com. “I’m honored and humbled to be just a tiny aside to their holy work? and a bit envious, too.”
She has recently released a video message that sparked a huge amount of excitement about both the upcoming RCS course and her new position at the helm of the society.
