Rav Ariel Ben-Horin
It was a happy day in North Miami Beach, FL in June of 1987. The following 28 years and counting have offered not less than a delightful upbringing in an Israeli/Sefardic home, wonderful teachers and rabbeim along the way, and a chance entry into a one-of-a-kind super-kollel.
After high school in Miami I spent two years in Aish HaTorah, Yerushalayim where I gained much from the dynamic experience in general, and specifically from my Rabbeim: R’ Noach Weinberg, R’ Dovid Schoonmaker, and R’ Lehrman. Following Aish, I moved to Baltimore, MD in 2007 to learn in Ner Yisroel where I stayed the next seven years, the majority of which were spent learning by Rav Tzvi Berkowitz. During my time in Baltimore I made great efforts to gain the utmost from the many wonderful rabbonim and mechanchim around town, and also received a Master’s degree in Education from Johns Hopkins University. Joining the CKD in 2015 has proven to be a great step forward in my quest to grow and ultimately serve others.
