A Message From Rabbi Rachael


As I am now the full-time Rabbi at the Beit Rayim Synagogue & School in Vaughan, Ontario, I have decided to pause all classes and events at Rachael’s Centre. 

I invite you to join me at Beit Rayim where you can register to receive my Shabbat thoughts, and news about events at the shul. You can reach us online at beitrayim.org or reach me directly at [email protected].

It has been my pleasure and honour to share teaching, learning, and Torah moments with everyone for all our wonderful years together. Aside from leading the shul community, I am also teaching through the shul, and I invite you to connect with me there. I hope you’ll join me in my journey as Rabbi with Beit Rayim.
