Core Semikha, Class of 2021
Tanya Farber served as a Jewish educator in yeshiva high schools in NY and NJ, coordinated a high school beit midrash, and taught her own 4th grade curriculum. Her teaching integrates text study with improv and other creative modalities, and Tefillah (prayer liturgy) with mindfulness and movement.
Tanya also worked for a decade with adults with developmental disabilities, and remains committed to accessibility and inclusion in religious communities. Tanya studied Torah in charedi seminaries, batei midrash, study halls (Drisha, Hadar) and completed social justice internships. Her teaching fuses Torah, and spiritual relevance, with the ethical call to action and service.
