David Aaron

Rabbi David Aaron is a spiritual visionary and master educator who has invested over 3 decades delving into life’s BIGGEST question marks and sharing Torah’s transformational wisdom to adults and young adults. He has emerged as the ‘God expert’  simply because he has dared to ask and answer the most difficult questions that he/ALL people have and/or struggle with about God’s existence and their own.

   As a child of a holocaust survivor, Rabbi Aaron has struggled to erase his childhood image of God as a punishing old man in the clouds, waiting for us to fail.  As we identify with his tales of trying to “buy off” the ultimate doom, we realize that our childish fears and images sometimes rule our deepest thoughts.

   Beneath Rabbi Aaron’s light-hearted playfulness is a mature, sophisticated and holistic understanding of Torah, well-grounded in classic and Chassidic sources. Torah Scholars, scientists and psychologists alike have marveled at the profundity of his comprehensive systematic thinking.

   Rabbi Aaron received his rabbinic ordination for Yeshivat ITRI. He is the Dean & Founder of Isralight (an international organization and center for Jewish learning in Jerusalem’s Old City) and Yeshivat Orayta (which offers a 1 to 2 year program for high school graduates).  He runs Jewish educational programs in Israel and abroad, including: Rabbinic Enrichment, Leadership Training, Executive Seminars, Retreats, Outreach Seminars and more. Rabbi Aaron has also developed educational curriculum for Jewish high schools.

   Rabbi Aaron is the author of eight ‘paradigm-shifting’ books. Works include: Endless Light, Seeing G-d, Love is My Religion, The Secret Life of G-dInviting G-d In, Living a Joyous Life and The God Powered Life.  (A number of books have been translated into Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Hebrew.)

   Rabbi Aaron lives in Jerusalem with his wife, Chana, and their seven children and grandchildren.
