Judge Freier:

Rachel Freier, known as Ruchie by her friends and family, was elected as Civil Court Judge in November 2016 and is currently assigned to Kings County Criminal  Court. Prior to becoming a judge, she maintained law offices in Borough Park and Monroe, N. Y. licensed to practice in NY, NJ and Washington DC.
Rachel attended Bais Yaakov from elementary school through seminary.  Her teachers, many of whom were students of Sara Schneirer impressed upon her that each person is created with a Tzelem Elokim, in the image of G-D with incredible potential, which inspired her to reach great heights in public service.
After graduating Bais Yaakov, Rachel worked as a legal secretary and then worked her way up to paralegal while supporting her husband, Tzi David Freier, who studied the Talmud in Kollel during the first ten years of her marriage.  Subsequently, Rachel attended Touro College, where she majored in Political Science and directed the Women’s Pre-Law Society.
After graduating Touro College with honors, she attended Brooklyn Law School part time so that she would have time to study law while raising her six children.  She was recently honored as one of Brooklyn Law School’s Trailblazers for being the first Chassidic woman to be elected to public office.
After graduating law school, Rachel founded Chasdei Devorah, Inc. a non profit charity, in memory of her friend who passed away at a young age. Thereafter she formed B’Derech, a grassroots non profit organization advocating for education and opportunity for adolescents in the Chassidic community.
When a group of Chassidic female Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) in Borough Park
Asked Rachel to assist them in their desire to serve other women during emergencies, her offer to help them mushroomed into directing a global grassroots all women’s volunteer agency known as Ezras Nashim.  In order to be a more effective leader, she became an EMT.
Thereafter she attended CLI at North Shore LIJ n/k/a Northwell Health for her paramedic training.
Rachel is a proud, devoted mother and grandmother of a Chassidic Family.  She is dedicated to her Chassidic community specifically and reaches out to the general Jewish community.
