Raisel Freedman


Raisel Freedman is the Director of Public Affairs at PaJeS having held a number of roles since joining in 2015.

Raisel prides herself on representing Jewish schools at a governmental level and advocating for them across a wide range of issues. She also manages a number of projects including schools’ gift aid issues and research into the provision of school places across the community.

Raisel holds a BA in Law and Politics and a Masters in European Jewish History. As a graduate of the Chief Rabbi’s Ma’ayan programme she runs a taharat hamishpacha hotline for the Alei Tzion community giving women the opportunity to connect with a woman in discussing sensitive topics.

Outside of the office Raisel is an avid reader, podcast enthusiast and keen runner and finds it surprising how often these interests overlap.
