Rabbi Avi Okin, MSW, was born and raised in West Orange, NJ, and attended the Jewish Educational Center (JEC) before learning at Yeshivat Shaarei Mevaseret Tzion and Yeshiva College. He obtained semichah from Yeshivas Rabbeinu Yitzchak Elchonon (RIETS) and an MSW from the Wurzweiler School of Social Work. While still a student, Rabbi Okin began writing Connecting to Hashem as an advisor for New York NCSY, based on his discussions with youths who were curious about why and how to connect to their Creator. Rabbi Okin’s rabbinic, pedagogical, and pastoral work focuses on bringing the joy and warmth of Judaism into everyday life. He enjoys singing, learning Torah, and stock investing. Rabbi Okin is now working as Rabbi of the Young Israel of Greater Buffalo and as the Rav Ha’Machshir of the Buffalo Va’ad Hakashrus
