Aliza Bulow is the national coordinator of Ner LeElef’s North American Women’s Program, and the Senior Educator for The Jewish Experience in Denver, Colorado. She teaches ongoing classes in Jewish philosophy, basic Judaism and textual learning skills, as well as lecturing on a broad range of topics in venues across the country and around the world. A 13th generation American born to Protestant parents in the 1960’s, her upbringing was intensely impacted by her parents’ deep commitment to the civil rights movement. After a spiritual search that began in early adolescence, Aliza converted to Judaism at the age of 16. She went to Israel shortly thereafter and lived there for four years while she studied at Michlelet Bruria and the Hebrew University, and served in the Nachal division of the Israeli Defense Forces. In 1985, while completing her BA in Hebrew and Jewish Social Studies at Hunter College, she married and moved to Long Beach, NY. Aliza has been a Jewish Educator for over twenty five years and she now mentors women who work in Jewish Adult Education and Outreach, and provides consulting for Jewish Outreach organizations across the country. Aliza works to strengthen Jews and their connections to their heritage, to their mission and to each other. More information is available on her website: ABiteOfTorah.com.
