Rabbi Chaya Rowan Baker

Rabbi, Coordinator at the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary

Ordained in 2007 by the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary, Rabbi Rowen-Baker serves since her ordination as the rabbi of Kehillat Ramot-Zion in French Hill, Jerusalem.  Ramot Zion, a flagship Masorti congregation, is home to many Israelis in search of a meaningful connection to Jewish tradition in a rapidly changing world.

Much of Rabbi Rowen-Baker’s work is done outside the synagogue space, with those not accustomed to synagogue life, so as to make accessible a vibrant Jewish approach and practice which is part of all walks of life.  In 2015 she was the first Masorti rabbi – and the first female rabbi – ever to be invited to teach Torah at the Israeli President’s residence.

Rabbi Rowen-Baker lives in French Hill, Jerusalem with her husband Etai, their four children Adaya, Keshet, Clil, and Yagel, and their dog Hummus.
