Born in the UK and having studied at the London College of Fashion and Technology, Rachel moved to Australia where she worked as a fashion buyer.

After living globally for 40 years and pursuing her Jewish roots whilst in Hong Kong, she eventually made her home in Jerusalem.

As exciting as this may be, her most rewarding role is that of a mother.
