Rachel Korazim is a freelance Jewish education consultant specializing in curriculum development for Israel and Holocaust education. Rachel has vast experience in Jewish education both in Israel and the Diaspora, and teaches Holocaust related topics as well as Israel Diaspora relations and current Israeli literature.
Born in Israel, she served in the IDF as an officer in the central training base for women and was later a member of the IDF delegation to Niger (West Africa). She is a graduate of Haifa University with a PhD in Jewish education. Until 2008 she was the Academic Director of Distance Learning programs at the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) Department of Education.
Since her first Shlichut to Canada where she was the head of the JAFI delegation (from 1985 to 1988) she has been involved with Jewish education in the Diaspora; creating and implementing in-service training programs for educators, writing educational materials, counseling and teaching. Rachel is familiar, through many visits, with the Jewish education communities of the US, Canada, Latin America and Europe, and since 1990 has invested much of her time and energy in helping the emerging Jewish schools of Hungary.
Rachel has been a beloved teacher of our Temple Emanuel participants at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. We are thrilled to welcome her back for an encore visit as our Rabbi Samuel Chiel Kallah scholar.
The annual Rabbi Samuel Chiel Kallah is a stimulating weekend of prayer, study, and good fellowship that finds its roots in the Talmudic period, when thousands of Jews flocked to the great academies of Babylonia to hear lectures by the scholar Rav.
Our Kallah, named in 1978 as a tribute to the values taught by our Rav, Rabbi Samuel Chiel z''l, offers each of us the modern equivalent of this Talmudic institution.
