Rabbi Bat-Or’s training and experience enable her to bring to her work a rich maturity and deep understanding of the human yearning to matter, to make a difference, to be respected and affirmed, and yes, even to bless and be blessed. Her work as a congregational rabbi and as president of the Center for Racial Understanding in Macon have enriched her capacity to understand and share with others her insights related to group dynamics and individual human behavior.

Rachel worked with me during a time of huge personal change. Our work spanned a five year period. Her listening and reflective skills, compassion, wisdom and steadfast presence plus her professionalism and expertise changed my life not just at the time, but for the long run. I recommend her as a change agent, a supportive and insightful guide of the highest integrity.
