Rachel is a Communications Fellow with the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, where she spends her time creatively amplifying the stories of international Jewish communities, programs, people, and events.
Rachel graduated from Oberlin College in 2017 with a B.A. in Religion and Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies, but more importantly with the completion of four years doing sketch comedy and two bowling classes. She held multiple leadership positions in the Jewish community, both on campus as the Communications & Program director of Oberlin's Hebrew Heritage House, and off-campus as an educator with the youth movement, Habonim Dror North America.
Following graduation, Rachel interned at the NPR Headquarters in Washington D.C., where she contributed to story production and social media, supported front-line fundraisers, and spent most lunches squeezing her way to the front row of Tiny Desk concerts. She then journeyed to Jerusalem to study at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies where she focused her courses on gender and sexuality in Judaism as well as concepts of Jewish spirituality.
Rachel loves to travel, and has a daily changing list of future adventures. She also enjoys listening to podcasts, capturing the perfect panorama, and being the last straggling visitor at museums.
