Rakhel Silverman is grateful to JWA for giving them an outlet for their many Jewish feelings. Rakhel recently graduated from Bryn Mawr College, where they majored in Religion and Sociology. They are currently in the Avodah Jewish Service Corps and work at Jews United for Justice as a community organizer and program assistant. Rakhel spends much of their time thinking about queer Torah, faith-based organizing, ritual innovation, making Jewish spaces more accessible, and cults. Their crowning achievement was at age 13 when they wrote a 20-page paper on why Rakhel was not into Jacob. Rakhel plans to attend rabbinical school. They are also the proud mother to Li'l Sebastian the guinea pig. To read more of their Jewish social justice rants and attempts at humor, check them out on Twitter @rachbsilverman.
