Ruach Israel has some great people on staff that bring a unique set of gifts to serve the congregation’s needs. Learn about some of these great people below!

On Staff

Dr. Rachel Cobleigh
Office Assistant

Rachel joined the staff of Ruach Israel in March of 2019, when she was looking for a part-time opportunity while being a stay-at-home mom with her young daughter. She is a graduate of UMass Amherst and holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science. As part of her undergraduate degree, she earned a minor in Judaic Studies and also studied modern Hebrew for two years. She enjoys helping to create systems and processes that enable Ruach Israel’s community to thrive and grow!

Community Coordinator

Shayna joined Ruach Israel in the summer of 2016 after moving back to the East Coast, where she had grown up and attended college. She quickly plugged into a music team, started lay leading services as a shlichat tzibbur and became one of the leaders of the congregation’s Boston-based young adult community, CityRuach, and resident of its corresponding community house, Ruach House. Shayna is the first person to fill the role of Community Coordinator which she started in the fall of 2017.
