 Speaker:   Rachel Johnson

Rachel grew up in OKC and has been a lifelong member of Temple B’nai Israel in OKC. She served on the Board of the Oklahoma City Chapter of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, and that’s what started her love of non-profit work. She worked at Ackerman McQueen for 9 years in production, accounting, account service (client relations), and analytics. She joined the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City in 2018 as Program Associate and was promoted to Assistant Executive Director in 2020. She became Interim Executive Director in 2021 and now is the Executive Director.

She is an advocate for security and programs that educate others on biases, hate, and antisemitism.  She is a graduate of the FBI of Oklahoma City’s Citizens Academy, the Oklahoma City Police Citizen’s Academy and the Glass Leadership Institute with the Anti-Defamation League. Rachel also serves on the Hillel of Oklahoma University’s board, the FBI Oklahoma City Citizen’s Academy Alumni board and is a commissioner for the Metropolitan Library.
Meetings start at 6:00 pm in the Musser Learning Lab in the Research Library at the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive, Oklahoma City (across from the State Capitol–see map)
