Leibowitz, Nechama

(1905-97)
   Respected Biblical scholar and educator. Born in Riga, Russia, and educated in Berlin, Germany, she immigrated (see ALIYA) to Palestine in 1930. She taught for many years at various religious and secular institutions, including the Mizrachi Women Teachers Seminary and Tel Aviv University. In 1942, she began the practice of distributing stenciled pages of questions on the weekly Torah portion. Over the years, the "Pages" became increasingly popular, reaching ever-broader sectors of Israeli society. Widely recognized as one of the most influential and popular Torah educators of the 20th century, Leibowitz was awarded the Israel Prize for education in 1956. She died in Jerusalem.
