Dr. Rachel Fish

Founding Executive Director, Foundation to Combat Anti-Semitism

Speaker: The impact of Intersectionality on the American Jewish Community: Challenges and Opportunities

Dr. Rachel Fish is founding Executive Director of the Foundation to Combat anti-Semitism. Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, established the foundation to catalyze dynamic new solutions to stop the age-old hatred advanced by those who seek the elimination of Judaism and the Jewish people and the modern movement to destroy the world’s only Jewish State. The foundation focuses on positively impacting attitudes of young people around the world, leveraging social media to deliver educational campaigns and spur action by people of all backgrounds. Fish was most recently Senior Advisor and Resident Scholar of Jewish/Israel Philanthropy at the Paul E. Singer Foundation in New York City. She was also the Executive Director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University.
Fish has taught at Brandeis University, Harvard University, UMASS Amherst and in adult Jewish education programs. In 2015 she held the Rohr Visiting Professorship at Harvard University, where she lectured on modern Israel and received the Derek Bok Certificate of Teaching Excellence. She is co-editor, with Ilan Troen, of the book Essential Israel: Essays for the Twenty-First Century.
