In a significant move aimed at enhancing Torah study opportunities for its English-speaking students, the Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT) has appointed Rabbi Shalom Rosner as the Rosh Beit Midrash (head of Torah study) for the English-language program at Machon Lev, the men’s campus of JCT. The esteemed Jewish educator and leader will assume his new role in September 2024, marking a pivotal moment for JCT’s commitment to providing a high-level Torah study environment.
Rabbi Rosner, an ordained graduate of Yeshiva University’s Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, is recognized for his expertise in clarifying complex sugyot (topics or discussions). Having been a prominent figure in Israel’s Torah study space for the past decade, including his tenure at Yeshivat Reishit Yerushalayim and Yeshivat Kerem B’Yavneh, Rabbi Rosner brings a wealth of experience to his new position.
Expressing his vision for the future, Rabbi Rosner emphasized the importance of creating a space where English-speaking international students can pursue a college degree while simultaneously engaging in Torah learning and growth. He believes that JCT’s unique model, combining Torah, prestigious degrees in business and technology, and the opportunity to study in Israel, provides a holistic educational experience for students seeking to remain in the country.
“We see the center of the Jewish future as being in Israel,” Rabbi Rosner stated. “JCT is creating a home in which its unique model enables students to stay in Israel, whether it’s before army service or after the army, whatever suits their path in life.”
Renowned for his warm and caring teaching style, Rabbi Rosner has been a popular lecturer with a global following through online platforms such as AllDaf, AllParsha, and www.OU.org. His ability to clarify intricate discussions and his role as a mentor have contributed to his leadership in the Torah study space.
Having made Aliyah to Israel in 2008, Rabbi Rosner also serves as the spiritual leader of the Nofei Hashemesh community in Beit Shemesh. His commitment to Torah education extends to his role as the camp rabbi and educational director at Camp Kaylie during the summers.
Reflecting on his new role at JCT, Rabbi Rosner expressed his privilege in contributing to the elevation of the English-language programs. “It’s now my privilege to be able to help elevate the English-language programs at JCT where students live, learn, and grow, and have access to everything they expect from a high-quality yeshiva program,” he said. Rabbi Rosner also emphasized the institution’s commitment to fostering Torah growth in students’ futures beyond the walls of the Beit Midrash.
Married to Dr. Rabanit Tamar Rosner, a pediatrician, and a father of seven children, Rabbi Shalom Rosner looks forward to making a lasting impact on the Torah learning journey of students at JCT.
