Rabbi Shimon Yerucham Green, Shlit”a, is currently the Rav of Kehillas HaTurim and the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas HaTurim in Phoenix, AZ. Previously, Rabbi Green was the Rosh Yeshiva of Bircas HaTorah in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem for over 20 years. Rav Green left Yeshivas Bircas HaTorah in the capable hands of his prized students for the sole purpose of doing more Torah & Mitzvos here in America. Rav Green founded Kehillas HaTurim with several close community members in Phoenix as a shul and place of learning. In addition, its members and its location will provide the home and foundation for Yeshivas HaTurim. HaTurim trains mature men 18 years of age and older who desire to grow to the highest heights in Torah and closeness to Hashem.
Over the past 40 years, the Rosh Yeshiva has helped countless talmidim grow in avodas Hashem, empowering them with tools to live an enriched Torah life. The Yeshiva trains talmidim, from the intermediate to the very advanced student in a rigorous, methodical and inspiring approach to limud HaTorah from the primary Torah sources to p'sak Halacha.
The Rosh Yeshiva emigrated to Eretz Yisrael at the age of seventeen. After fourteen years of intensive study with his primary teacher, HaRav Mordechai Goldstein, Shlit"a, he was ordained. The Rav then went on to pursue post-rabbinic studies with HaRav Zalman Nechemiah Goldberg, Shlit”a, at the renowned Kollel Shevet U'Mechokek, from which he also holds an ordination. In addition to the Rabbi's formal studies, throughout those years, he traveled the length and breadth of Eretz Yisroel presenting Torah programs to thousands of youths and adults, in companies, schools, army bases, kibbutzim, and moshavim.
Rabbi Green has delivered numerous seminars, lectures, and Shabbatonim throughout the world. His popular presentations are famous for their depth, clarity, humor, and inspiration. Those who have experienced the Rosh Yeshiva are awed by his incredible grasp of the depth and breadth of Hashem’s Torah and his ability to teach others to independently access its beauty.
We are fortunate to have the Rabbi & Rebbitzen to guide and help our community.
