Chana Bilek

Speaker, Coach, Consultant, Mom, and Fellow Traveler on Life's Journey

Hi! I'm Chana.

I'm a Korean-American Orthodox Jewish adoptee. It's quite an identity to carry! I've done a lot of work figuring out who I am, and I hope to inspire and guide others along their path as well.

I've spoken with, for, and to a lot of different people. Adoptive parents and adoptees, biological parents and natural-born children. I've worked with non-Jews and Jews of all stripes - observant and estranged, Chabad and Reform, you name it.

One thing we all have in common - we're all searching.

Some of us are searching for our biological roots, our inherited identities, our historical selves. All of us are searching for something greater, for Someone greater.

I was born into poverty in Daegu, South Korea. Now I'm married to an Orthodox rabbi in Baltimore, Maryland, in the most prosperous nation in history.

Quite a journey.

I've been through the search. I'm still searching, really. But I know the path pretty well. Let's connect, and maybe I can help you find your way too.
