Leiba Smith is our Office Manager for the Overseas Program and teaches ‘The Written Word’, a hands-on writing workshop that both imparts skills of writing and allows students to express, via the written word, some of their life and Midrasha experience.
Leiba hails from Winnipeg Canada, where she completed a BA in Comparative Religion and Anthropology before spending several years learning and working as a madricha in Michlelet Bruria, the precursor to Midreshet Lindenbaum. Leiba has accumulated many years of experience in administration and management, and enjoys both a good logistics challenge and serving students with a smile. With over 15 years of experience in writing workshops and groups, Leiba is passionate about using words to explore, untangle, and share life experience. She lives in Tekoa with her husband and 7 chickens, and is visited often by her six children, children-in-law and the grandkids.
