Mrs. Raquel Kirszenbaum
Raquel Kirszenbaum was born on Margarita Island, Venezuela and moved to Panama when she was 6 years old. After completing high school she went to Israel for what would become a life changing experience. After studying at Neve Yerushalaim College, she chose for herself a life path filled with vibrant Judaism and growth. She later returned to Panama to share that inspiration by teaching in high school and at Midrasha Horev – the first higher Judaic Studies school for women in Panama.
After marrying, she made Aliya in 2011, settling in Jerusalem with her husband and family. Since then, she has built a career teaching Judaism to women from all paths of lives, including being a regular Trip Leader JWRP – the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project. She is a sought-after speaker in Jerusalem and internationally, having spoken in cities across the USA, Chile, Argentina, Panama, Mexico and Costa Rica. She has also been invited to speak at the prestigious Sinai Indaba in South Africa.
