Rafael has spent the last 18 years working at JFS as a Jewish Studies teacher and 6th Form Jewish Studies Coordinator. His invaluable school and pupil focused insight is key in developing the department and programming for the future of Aish UK.
Rafael works with Jewish and non-Jewish secondary schools to provide an informal setting for Jewish students to connect with their Jewish identity. Rafael also works together with schools to develop the existing school’s provision as well as the team, including the NXT’ programme which offers unique opportunities for school students to hear from successful Jewish leaders in their professional fields. Rafael is excited for the challenge of connecting young people to their Jewish identity in the modern day.
