Her 20-year long genealogy hobby, focusing on Galicia, nowadays in the Ukraine, has led her to interesting family history discoveries, such as the identification of many of the 89 murdered family members of Cyla and Simon Wiesenthal as well as to the development of a unique House Number Database of the Galician town from which the Wiesenthal family originates.

Racheli holds a PhD in Biotechnology and Molecular Microbiology from Tel Aviv University (TAU), an Executive MBA from TAU, an MSc in Chemistry (summa cum laude) from the Technion Israel Institute of Technology and an BSc in biology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. \
