Rabba Dina Brawer serves as the Executive Director of World Jewish Relief USA, an international humanitarian agency.

She spent two decades serving the London Jewish community with her husband Rabbi Naftali Brawer under the late Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks z’’l. (fun fact - she oversaw the Italian translation of Sack’s “Dignity of Difference’)

Together they co-founded Mishkan pop-up community and curated meaningful prayer experiences.

She founded JOFA UK, an orthodox feminist movement which became a catalyst for both grassroots and institutional change and led her to study for semikha. She produced two podcasts: #YourTorah, a journey through the 63 tractates of the Mishnah taught entirely by women, and PrayerFull: a guided prayer podcast.

She was born and raised in Milan, Italy and studied in Jerusalem, New York and London. She holds a BA in Hebrew and Jewish Studies from the University of London and an MA in Education and Psychology from the Institute of Education, London, and Semikha from Yeshivat Maharat.
