Rachel Kamins, parent

Rachel and her husband Joel have been active in social justice for many years through work, volunteering and protests. As most participants can attest, activism can be a powerful piece of one’s Jewish identity, although it wasn’t until Rachel and Joel came to Workmen’s Circle that they found a proper home for that instinct. For them, Workmen’s Circle provided a venue where culture and community converged in one place with the celebration of Jewish holidays and life events along with social justice activism. For Rachel, Workmen’s Circle is a community that nurtures her family’s discovery of its own Jewish identity.
