ARZA World Welcomes Rabbi Lisa Tzur & Women of the Wall Israel Tour

We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Rabbi Lisa Tzur as the newest ARZA World North American Representative.

She is a graduate of Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, and of the URJ College Academic Year Israel undergraduate program. Rabbi Tzur also served on the Outreach Committee for the Union for Reform Judaism-Pacific Southwest Region (URJ-PSW) and has experience connecting with Jews of all different backgrounds. Rabbi Tzur served as the music specialist for the NFTY in Israel programs and was on the faculty of the first NFTY Exodus programs origination in Prague.

Women of the Wall
AW works in partnership with trip organizers to create tailor made trip experiences. When Rabbi Jonathan Singer approached the AW team to build an Israel Tour experience with them, they had a very specific 'something' in mind: a program which would highlight solidarity with their progressive Jewish counterparts in Israel and especially with Women of the Wall. Rabbis Pam Frydman Baugh and Sue Morningstar will be joining him on this historic trip.
