Meet our New Assistant Director
Rabbi Yisrael Rabinowitz "Rebo"

Before moving to Houston this past summer to join the staff of the renowned Robert M. Beren Academy in Houston, Rabbi Yisroel "Rebo" Rabinowitz was the Principal and Director of Torah High, NCSY Canada's after-school Jewish Studies program. Under his leadership, Torah High grew from 20 students receiving one course credit to over 500 students taking 13 different accredited courses. This success has given rise to numerous Torah High locations all over North America. He has written curriculums, directed programs and retreats, all while maintaining close knit relationships with thousands of teens. "Rebo" received his rabbinic ordination from Ner Israel Rabbinical College of Toronto and holds a Masters degree in Educational Science from the Azriele Graduate school of Jewish Education and Administration. He and his wife Tzivy are the proud parents of five wonderful and active children.
