Amanda Thum

Amanda (outreach@phillyfriendship.com) was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, spent a few years in Hawaii, and has lived in Philadelphia since 2018. She is a proud graduate of Barnard, the women’s college of Columbia University. Amanda is a certified yoga teacher and founded The Confidence Class: yoga for women and girls’ confidence. She is a high energy people-person, and confident communication is her jam. She loves to facilitate group learning and encourages young people—especially girls—to speak up (and often). Amanda is ecstatic to be a part of the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s mission and life’s work through Philly Friendship Circle! In her spare time, you can find her teaching class, exercising, jumping out of airplanes, and praying.
