What Makes a Rabbi

It was a wonderful revelation to be introduced to and to learn with a rabbi who turned my image of what a rabbi is and could be on its head.  Rather than being a dour and intimidating man (what I had always thought rabbis to be), David was someone who could wax eloquent about the Talmud, to be sure, but also about sports, Shakespeare, and a wide range of other topics.  Nina Mogilnik, Great Neck, NY

[David] has a brilliant mind; he is a scholar of great range and depth; he is a deeply devoted father and husband; his outstanding abilities at organization are manifest in the splendid Me'ah Program he created and fostered; he is a forceful and moving orator; he is a man of both compassion and commitment; he is a teacher who fortifies and inspires; he is a natural leader; and his contribution to the Jewish community is legendary.
