Tell us a bit about yourself. (E.G. job, family, hobby, where you live)
I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my wife and five beautiful children. I work as an employment and business lawyer. My wife and I are both very involved in community leadership in the Torah community, devoting much time and energy to helping to continue building on our Torah values.
What is one of your favorite memories, Shiurim, Rebbeim, or events while attending Bais?
My favorite memory of Bais was the roar of the Kol Torah from the Beis Medrash during first seder. I used to love walking downhill on Zevin when I was in the Kollel and be confronted with the roar of Torah from the open windows.
How has your time at Bais influenced or helped you in your life?
Bais set me on my spiritual trajectory in life. I transferred to Bais from another yeshiva, but Bais solidified my entire life path as a Ben Torah, even outside of Kli Kodesh. Rabbi Brazil’s vaadim defined my entire worldview to this day on personal growth. The approach and commitment to learning defined my entire attitude toward Torah throughout my life. Being so deeply grounded in Torah before and during the early years of marriage prepared me for many life challenges that came after I left.
What advice would you give a fellow Bais Alumni?
Keep learning, growing, and staying connected to your roots as a Ben Torah. No matter where you are or what you do, maintain your core identity as a Ben Torah.
