Rachael’s Centre Toronto
is a not for profit, charitable organization that focuses on sharing and applying Jewish wisdom from a woman’s perspective.

Dr. Rachael Turkienicz, our founder and executive director, has developed a unique approach to revealing these ancient truths in the context of a modern world. Rachael holds a Ph.D. in Talmudic and Midrashic Studies from Brandeis University. Currently she is a Professor at York University in both of its Education and Jewish Studies faculties. Rachael is an influential and needed woman’s voice within Judaism today.

Rachael’s Centre in Toronto is pluralistic, community based, unaffiliated and open to people of all backgrounds. The core of the Centre and its programmes is the wisdom of Jewish text presented through a female lens.

Rachael’s Centre also offers programmes and courses on the interior moral and life systems of Mussar (Jewish ethics).
