Rachel Lieber is an active community member at Washington DC’s Sixth & I Historic Synagogue—an innovative synagogue that fosters meaningful Jewish experiences for people in their 20s and 30s. With a commitment to living a Jewish life and creating a Jewish home with her non-Jewish partner, Rachel and her husband participated in Sixth & I’s Jewish Welcome Workshop. The 30-week course, led by Rabbi Shira Stutman, provides an in-depth introduction to Judaism through a mix of lectures, text studies, and holiday celebrations. The program culminates with a trip to Israel. Rachel grew up in Rockville, Maryland and graduated from the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School. She holds a Masters of Science in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University and a B.A. from Tufts University. Rachel is currently a Senior Project Officer at Management Sciences for Health, where she works to improve access to medicines and pharmaceutical services in low-income countries.
