A fellow BT has been blessed by Hashem with great insight and great financial resources. Looking back at what was missing when he became frum, he has allocated significant funds to provide learning opportunities specifically for BT’s — at this point specifically for BT women who he feels are really under-served!
Yes, finally, someone understands that many of us – especially the newcomers – need something other than more outreach classes to help us really feel like we ‘get it’ and fit in!
He, together with the team he has hired, are interested in our input – -what we need / want /long for etc. And they’re asking two simple questions:
1) If you could spend a few days with fellow BT’s and have the perfect schedule of classes, lectures, discussions, activities, etc – what would you want included in the curriculum/schedule?
2) If you had the money and the time, what would you do to help other BTs make the transition – or maintain the transition – more smoothly?
