Rachel Weinstein White

Executive Director & Founder
Rachel Weinstein White wears a lot of hats. Part entrepreneur, part management consultant, and Mama to her three boys, Rachel created Fig Tree in 2015 after not being able to find a Jewish education program that resonated with her family. Prior to founding Fig Tree, Rachel built a successful consulting practice catering to clients in EdTech and other emerging technologies. Before that, Rachel spent 15 years in various senior roles at Yahoo!, WebMD, IDT, and Accenture. (Creating and heading Fig Tree has been, by far, her most rewarding professional experience to date!) Rachel is active in several non-profit and charitable organizations, and is currently the Board Chair at Little Essentials. Rachel has a BA in English Lit from Vassar College. In her (admittedly limited) spare time, she enjoys the beach, all things food/ wine related, and is a voracious reader. Rachel lives in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn with her husband and three sons.
