Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Rachel Iskov

Rachel Iskov’s academic background in Holocaust History instilled in her a deep appreciation for the wide breadth of rights we have as Canadians, as well as for the importance of political participation. Having studied and taught the dangers of political apathy and the powerlessness and vulnerability of those whose civil rights have been stripped from them, she values the work CJPAC does to engage the Jewish community in the political process. After leaving her PhD, Rachel worked at Ryerson University and at Reena Foundation. She has volunteered for two decades organizing and leading Toronto Holocaust education and remembrance programming.
