About the Artist
Raised in a suburb of Atlanta, GA, Rae Antonoff left the South for college near DC, after which she worked for two non-profits on Capitol Hill. That didn’t last long before she realized that Judaism, not politics, is her true calling, and she moved to Israel to begin her Masters in Jewish Education at Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, where her research focused on Jewish art education. She recently graduated from the Los Angeles, CA campus and works with a variety of synagogues and organizations locally and nationally. She currently works as the Director of Education at Beth Chayim Chadashim, teaches at Santa Monica Synagogue, and offers artist-in-residence programs and curriculum consulting to other synagogues for workshops and retreats occasionally throughout the year. She recently founded JLearnHub to support Jewish educators buy & sell their resource creations. She is thrilled to be working with ShalomLearning and Jewish Learning Matters as well to develop and support digital resources available to Jewish educators. In the spare time she manages to eke out between writing, teaching, and other jobs, Rae works on her art: micrography, calligraphy, vinyl wall art, glass etching, and painting, just to name a few.
Rae is currently booking workshops and curricular development contracts for the 2019-2020 school year! Email to inquire.
