We had Penina Taylor speak at our Bnot Torah/Sharfman's Kiruv Seminar and her personal story very much enlightened and inspired the hearts of our students.

We brought Penina out to speak for our community, and are still talking about her presentation 7 years later!

Her unusual journey, combined with her approachable style, makes her an excellent presenter whose message is important and always relevant.— Ruchi Koval, Founder and Associate Director, Jewish Family Experience, Cleveland, Ohio
Penina is a charming, educated and down to earth speaker. She drew us in and succinctly delivered her story and then stayed to answer questions and sign books. The women could not get enough of Penina and had deep and lengthy conversations with her after the program.— Susan Rifkin, Chair of Programming, Jewish Educational Center – Women’s Division, Elizabeth, NJ
Penina came to speak for a group of students from IDC in Herzliya and the students were riveted throughout. In today’s day, when we are programmed to lose interest after thirty seconds, Penina not only held their attention, but her fascinating story and excellent speaking skills had students say she was the most interesting person we’ve brought in all year. A true pleasure.— Chezky Hoffman, Director, Jeff Seidel’s student center, Hertzliya, Hertzliya, Israel
Penina spoke to Rabbis and Rebbetzins in Johannesburg. Her presentation was riveting and enlightening; Rabbis are a notoriously difficult audience, yet we sat virtually spellbound throughout her presentation. Penina was respectful of the audience, professional, amusing and yet… frightening. We went away with a feeling that we had learnt a lot, but at the same time that we needed to know much more.— Rabbi Aharon Rose, Chairman, South African Rabbinical Association, Johannesburg, South Africa
