It’s people like you who make every day better than the day before. So all in all, thank you Jeryl for coming to our library.”Sara Ashbourne, Paddington Library
“The choice of speaker is given careful consideration at our school. Jeryl gave an excellent talk entitled “Why is Fat (Still) a Feminist Issue?” to the Sixth Form girls. She was able to empathize with her audience at the same time as delivering a very clear and thought-provoking discussion.
The success of her talk can be measured by the calibre of the questions the students raised.
From the talk I would wholeheartedly recommend Jeryl without reservation.”Susan L Scriven, Sixth Form Tutor, Queenswood School
“Jeryl gave a very insightful talk entitled “Eating Disorders in the Jewish Community.” The discussion ranged across the spectrum of anorexia, bulimia and dieting and also focused on the Jewish attitude to food.
The Q&A session at the end could have gone on for hours!”Jenny Taylor, Chairman, St Albans Jewish Women’s Forum
“Jeryl Scurr gave a talk to 40 members of Harpenden Probus Secundus Club on the subject “The Obesity Crisis: Truth, Lies and Statistics.”
It was a fascinating, enthusiastic and well-researched talk on the changing Western diet and its influence on our weight and health.”Colin Clark, Probus
“Your talk, “Diet, Diet…Eat Eat: Being Jewish in a Barbie world” was very enjoyable and interesting! It resonated with many of our members, reminding them of their own experiences. Your presentation and visual illustrations were thought-provoking and helpful. Our members learnt a lot!”Daphne Zemmel, Bushey Synagogue
