About Rabbi Rudin
 
Rabbi Gavriel Rudin grew up in Passaic, New Jersey. He spent many years studying in-depth Talmud and Halachah (Jewish Law). He received his semicha (Rabbinic Ordination) from Ner Yisroel in Baltimore. After receiving his semicha, Rabbi Rudin and his family spent two years teaching and inspiring Jews of the San Francisco Bay Area as a Rabbi at the Jewish Study Network of Palo Alto, California. Rabbi Rudin now lives in Norfolk, Virginia, where he serves as the Outreach Coordinator for the Norfolk Kollel. In addition, he has recently taken on a new role, assisting the Rabbi of B'nai Israel Congregation with teaching, programming and outreach.
 
Malka Rudin was born in Tucson, Arizona and spent most of her formative years in Monsey, New York. She works part time as a social worker and full time as a mother of her six children. In addition, Malka finds time to connect to Jewish women of all backgrounds and to learn with them one-on-one or in small groups. Her occasional classes are always well liked and inspiring.
