The Roslyn Synagogue has a tradition of participating in the education of the next generation of modern orthodox rabbis. The Roslyn Synagogue and Rabbi Block annually host a rabbinical intern. The rabbinical intern, at regular intervals, provides sermons and educational activities to the Roslyn Synagogue congregation, while getting real life rabbinical experience.
Aron Rubin grew up in Melbourne, Australia, where he attended high school at Leibler Yavneh College. He spend two years learning at Yeshivat Har Etzion in Israel and then returned to Melbourne to complete a double degree in a Bachelor of Food Technology and Nutrition and a Bachelor of Engineering at RMIT University. While in Australia, Aron was heavily involved in the Melbourne Jewish community, both as a counsellor in Bnei Akiva for three years and in giving a regular Daf Yomi Shiur, and other regular Shiurim.
After completing his degree in Australia, Aron decided to move to New York to study for Semicha at Yeshiva University. He is currently in his third year of Semicha.
Aron has had much experience giving Shiurim to people of varying ages and backgrounds. He is passionate about teaching Torah and communal involvement and wishes to pursue a career in Rabbanus. His hobbies also include martial arts, cooking and baking.
Aron is currently engaged to Leia Wachsstock from St. Louis and they will be married at the end of August, just before Aron begins his internship in Roslyn. Aron and Leia look forward to spending many Shabbatot in Roslyn and getting to know the community.
