Rebecca Joy Fletcher

Rebecca Joy Fletcher has served as The ARK’s first-ever Jewish educator, a title she has held for the past six years.

The mission of The ARK is to help Chicagoland Jews who are facing adversity navigate toward self-reliance. ARK professionals, volunteers, and donors provide free, comprehensive services within a framework of Jewish values and laws.

Additionally, Rebecca works as a professional actress in Chicago, and as a touring playwright and performer with her own original shows.

Finally, Rebecca runs a private coaching business, working with executives and thought leaders who seek to improve their public speaking skills and their leadership presence; and as a speaking coach for the ELI Talks.

At the heart of all the things Rebecca does is a dual commitment to creative expression and to vibrant Jewish life. Rebecca moved from Brooklyn to Chicago with her husband seven years ago.
