Rachel has been a member of Washington Hebrew Congregation for 55 years, since her father, Rabbi Joseph P. Weinberg Z”L , along with her mother, Marcia Weinberg, first arrived in the nation’s capital, for what the family believed would be a one-year commitment. WHC became a permanent home and the setting for multi-generational life cycle events, lots of learning, social and political activism and fun. Rachel taught religious school at WHC in the 1980s and later served on the synagogue’s Religious School Committee. She’s been involved with both campuses of the Early Childhood Centers and volunteered with The Carrie Simon House.
