Rabbi Yehuda Israel

Meet Rabbi Yehuda Israel

Rabbi Israel moved to Miami from New York in August 2020 to become a Rebbe in DACHS. Known for his warmth as well as his ability to clearly explain a complex Gemorah, he is a natural in the classroom where students feel welcomed and eager to learn. Before joining YTCTE, Rabbi Israel was a popular Rebbe in both Yeshivas Ohr Chaim and Mesivta Chofetz Chaim in Queens. 

What I do

As a 9th grade Rebbe, it is my job to make each talmid feel comfortable in their new high school environment. My goal is to develop their skills in critical thinking and reading the Gemorah so that they can succeed now and in the future.

How I make a difference at YTCTE

By developing strong relationships with each of my talmidim, I help them thrive during this critical, and sometimes difficult, period of their lives. 

My favorite part about what I do

When I see my student’s eyes light up as he comes to a deeper understanding of the sugya than he had before, I know I have done my job. There is nothing as rewarding as seeing a talmid recognize his success and taste the beauty and depth of our Torah.

Parting Words

YTCTE has a reputation for being a well run and professional Yeshiva. I feel honored to be part of its staff and have the opportunity to learn from all the talented and dedicated mechanchim.
