Rivka Campbell has a magnetic personality. When she speaks, her listeners are compelled to hang onto every word. As ‘theatre people’ who fully appreciate the art of storytelling, we can attest to the fact that Rivka has mastered it.
Regardless of the diversity of views and personalities among her audience, she always succeeds in finding ways to make a connection. The three hats she wears (as a woman, a Black person and a Jewish person) are not only key to informing her broad perspective, but also endow Rivka with a unique level of cross-representation.
Anyone looking to dig deeper into uncomfortable conversations could find no better guide than Rivka; she has a rare ability to dismantle barriers and help others move past discomfort, into the realm of discovery and deeper understanding.

Rivka led a Zoom event for our congregation in July 2019 to talk about Jews of Colour and what that experience is like, particularly within the Jewish community. She was very articulate, informative and personable! We had many people tell us after how much they appreciated hearing from her and that they learned a lot. And she was kind enough to stay up late in her time zone to talk to us in ours. We’re very grateful she took the time to join us!

In the fall of 2020, Rivka spoke, virtually, to the Sisterhood of our Synagogue. Her presentation was very interesting and informative. As the president of the Sisterhood, I received many emails from the congregants who had listened to Rivka’s emotional presentation and we very thankful that they were part of this wonderful discussion. I am very pleased that we were able to have Rivka shared her story with us.

Rutgers Hillel was delighted to have Rivka Campbell speak about the Jewish community of Jamaica. She kept our audience’s attention with her lovely stories, personal anecdotes, and facts from history that many of us didn’t know. She was engaging and lively. We would recommend her as a speaker on this subject to other groups.
