About Rae


Rae Antonoff is a Jewish educational consultant, artist, writer, and teacher based in Los Angeles, CA. Her mission is to bring high-quality learning materials to any Jew, of any age or affiliation, who is willing to learn. She has a particular fondness for materials that lend themselves well to self-paced learning in an effort to fill the needs of Jews who live far from a comfortable synagogue community and wish to engage in Jewish learning on their own, and for the typical religious school classroom that is struggling with shrinking allotted classroom time and sporadic attendance. Her portfolio of resources is constantly evolving -- check back soon for more!
