Rachel has been part of the Masorti Judaism for over a decade. She was the Masorti Judaism team Deputy Chief Executive of Masorti Judaism for three years before stepping up to the role of Chief Executive. Before that she spent eight years as the Director of Noam Masorti Youth and Marom. Rachel has spent a large part of the last 20 years focused on working with young people, developing future leaders and building resilient and strong communities. Her work has spanned three countries: the USA, Israel and the UK.
Leonie Fleischmann and Moira Hart, our Co-Chairs said “We have long admired Rachel’s commitment to Masorti Judaism. She has been at the centre of our movement’s success, developing young people through Noam, training our community leaders, and establishing new communities and innovative social action programmes. Her relationship-centred ethos and expertise in community- building makes her the perfect candidate to lead Masorti Judaism into the future.”
Rachel’s training includes a BA in youth and community work, certification in NLP training, coaching, and she is currently undergoing group analytic psychotherapy training. She is a founding member of the Havurah community, an experimental Masorti community looking at new ways to express authentic Judaism in new ways. Rachel’s current role is to develop Masorti communities and their leaders to build an exciting future for this movement.
