Rachel Silverman is grateful to JWA for giving her an outlet for her many Jewish feelings. As a religion and sociology major at Bryn Mawr College, co-founder of her IfNotNow chapter, and president of her college Hillel, Rachel spends much of her time thinking about queer Torah, faith-based organizing, ritual innovation, making Jewish spaces more accessible, and cults. Her crowning achievement was at age 13 when she wrote a 20-page paper on why Rachel was not into Jacob. Rachel plans to attend rabbinical school. She is also the proud mother to Li'l Sebastian the guinea pig. To read more of her Jewish social justice rants and attempts at humor, check her out on Twitter @rachbsilverman.
