Making the old city young again

 
 
Rabbi Yosef Bronstein made Aliyah in August of 2017. He took a leave of absence from his undergraduate studies at Yeshiva University to study in Israel at various Yeshivot including Kerem B’Yavneh, Har Etzion and Merkaz HaRav. Upon returning to New York he received a BA in Jewish Studies from Yeshiva College, ordination from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary and an MA in Talmudic Studies from the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies.  He is currently a member of the Wexner Kollel Elyon, an instructor of Jewish Philosophy at Yeshiva University’s Isaac Breuer College of Hebraic Studies Honors Program and is a PhD candidate in the field of Talmudic Studies.
