Miriam Lorie is the Director of Programmes and Alumni Engagement of Lead, the leadership development division of the Jewish Leadership Council. Her role focuses on the Adam Science Leadership Programme, and supporting Lead’s talented family of Alumni. Miriam is a passionate believer in the value of leadership development, mentoring and coaching to take leaders to their full potential.
She is co-founder of Kehillat Nashira, the UK’s first regularly meeting Partnership Minyan and for this role was named one of the Jewish Chronicle’s “Sixteen under 30’s to watch in 2016.” She is a graduate of the Susi Bradfield Fellowship (LSJS), the Nahum Goldmann Fellowship and is herself a proud alumna of the Adam Science Leadership Programme.
Miriam studied Theology and Religious Studies at Cambridge, and worked for Cambridge University’s Inter-faith Programme for seven years, running two leadership programmes there for Jewish, Christian and Muslim movers and shakers. She has also studied at Midreshet Harova and the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies. Her love of Jewish texts has taken her to successive Limmud conferences as a participant and presenter. Beyond her Lead role, Miriam teaches Jewish texts to adults, bar and batmitzvah students, and brides and grooms preparing for a Jewish marriage.
Miriam lives in Borehamwood, is married to Harris and mum to a cheeky three year old.
