Asha Sumroy

Asha Sumroy grew up just outside London and is a member of the Maidenhead Synagogue. She had always struggled with her Jewish identity, and joining Netzer created an environment where this struggle was positive and important. Asha sees the Reform Movement as a vital platform for creating social change, and feels it has undeniably changed the way she sees and interacts with the world. After attending RSY NETZER camps she completed a course of hadracha and is now a madricha in the movement. Music has also been a huge part of her Jewish life and making prayer accessible is extremely important to to Asha. Next year she will study sociology at the University of Durham.
