This Woman Runs a Dance School for Haredi Women in Israel

With the goal of driving up empowerment and self-worth for girls and women, Hawaii-born Rachel Factor has created a Jerusalem-based program for dance. The former Rockette and Broadway performer has spoken at seminaries and colleges around the world about her journey to Judaism. After making aliyah to Israel, Factor began to perform for women, and over the years more than 30,000 women have attended her shows. Soon, she realized that she had what to offer them in the realm of teaching as well. She founded a religious women’s dance school, which became the Jerusalem Center for the Performing Arts. Servicing hundreds of Haredi girls and women each year, the center gives many the opportunity for self-esteem and creative expression they wouldn’t have otherwise. Read more here.
