Rabbi Aaron Greenberg

Rabbi Aaron Greenberg

Rabbi Aaron Greenberg was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. After graduating from Yeshivat Or Chaim ('93), he spent a year and a half studying in Yeshivat Shilo. Upon completion of his degree in Psychology and Religious Studies from York University, Aaron returned to Israel to study at Yeshivat Har Etzion in the Gush. Upon returning to Canada, Aaron returned to his alma mater to work as a Madrich but soon began teaching classes in Gemara and Tanach. He began teaching at Or Chaim’s sister school, Ulpanat Orot, and was involved in coordinating student activates at both campuses. Aaron received his rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Gavriel Zinner of Brooklyn, New York. Aaron completed his Master's degree in Jewish School Administration and Education from Yeshiva University's Azrieli School of Education. In addition to his Master’s degree, Aaron also completed certification to be a principal through both the Board of Jewish Education and York University. Aaron is very involved in his local synagogue (BAYT) and actively assumes various roles including Rav of one of the minyanim on the yamim norayim as well as a weekly high school minyan. He sits on numerous committees in the community and acts as a Rabbinic counselor to numerous young adults, who look to him for spiritual guidance and advice. During his ten year tenure at Bnei Akiva Schools, Aaron was approached by Hillel of Greater Toronto to create a revolutionary program on campus at York University known as the “Turk Family Beit Midrash.”. This initiative grew into what is currently Aaron’s full time position as the co-educator and director of the Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus, a program sponsored by the Orthodox Union and Hillel. Currently Aaron also teaches a grade 12 Ethics course at Tannenbaum CHAT, a local Jewish High School.
