Since her ordination in 2007 by the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary, Rabbi Chaya Rowen Baker has served as the rabbi of Kehillat Ramot-Zion in French Hill, Jerusalem. Born to an Orthodox father and a Reform mother, she grew up within the Masorti Movement in Israel, in the Hod Hasharon TALI school and in NOAM. After her army service she was head of MAROM, the Masorti student and young-adult organization.

She holds a BA from the Hebrew University in Jewish History and Archaeology, and an MA, magna cum laude, from the Schechter Institute of Jewish studies. Rabbi Rowen-Baker participated in the first class of “B’ruach”, pastoral training at the oncology ward of Sha’are-Tzedek Medical Center, was the 2007 Tanenbaum Fellow of Congregation Beth-Tzedec in Toronto, and has been a fellow of RIKMA for leadership development since 2008.

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