how to raise a mensch

with Nili Couzens

How to Raise a Mensch:

The most important job you will ever have comes with no training, no handbook, no license. How do you know if you’re doing it right?? Parenting defined.

Nili Couzens has been teaching and inspiring Jewish audiences of all types for over 20 years. Her down-to-earth and relaxed nature, practical Torah wisdom and sense of humor combine to make her relatable, inspiring and entertaining. 
As an international speaker, Nili has lectured in England, Belgium, Israel, South Africa, Greece, Panama and over 30 cities across North America, including universities such as Penn, Tufts, Northwestern and Brandeis. She has served as Scholar-in-Residence and Keynote Speaker at numerous synagogues, retreats and conferences around the world, including the world-famous Sinai Indaba in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa, where she addressed audiences of thousands. 
She is a Trip Leader for the Momentum (formerly Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project), an organization that has brought over 15,000 people to Israel since 2009. (https://momentumunlimited.org/) Through this platform, Nili speaks to thousands of women from across the globe each year and has had her talks translated into five languages. 
Nili was the Founding Director of JLS (Jewish Life Seminars), an outreach organization in the Greater Philadelphia area, where she spearheaded Jewish women’s educational initiatives for over 17 years. She has been designing and leading trips to Israel since 2001. 
After living in South Africa for two years and North America for 17, Nili and her family moved to Israel in the summer of 2015 where she speaks to Israeli and international audiences throughout the country.

"Nili Couzens spoke brilliantly at Sinai Indaba, both in Cape Town and Johannesburg. She captivated audiences with the powerful combination of her engaging and entertaining style of delivery and her profound and immediately relevant ideas. "
