Rabbi David Charlop was born in suburban New York to a loving but non-affiliated Jewish family. During a post-college trip to Israel, he developed an appreciation and love for Torah. He later received his ordination and has been teaching Torah to young men of different ages, both in the US and Israel, for over 30 years. For the past twenty years, he has taught and provided guidance for at-risk youth at an English-speaking Yeshiva in Israel. He is happily married, with two children, and has lived in Israel for 25 years.
