Raquel Amit is the Central Synagogue’s Community Development Officer. She is also PA to Rabbi Lerer and Rebbetzin Naomi. Raquel works closely with the Lerers and Chazan Leas to involve the community with both large- and small-scale events throughout the year.

Prior to joining the team at Central, Raquel attained an undergraduate degree in Pharmacology and Physiology, as well as a Masters degree in Pharmaceutical Technology and also worked as the Production Coordinator in a publishing company for two years. She has since transferred her attention from multiple national publications to a single community publication – the Central Magazine!

She and her husband, Yoav, can be found downstairs every Shabbat coordinating the Children’s Services with their daughters Maya and Leila.
