Rabbi Shimon Isaacson
Rabbi Isaacson is the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Shaarei Mevasseret Tzion. He received his
Rabbinic Ordination from the Meretz Kollel.
Rabbi Isaacson brings a unique background and perspective to his
shiurim. Prior to embarking on his career in Jewish Education, he was
an attorney at a law firm in New York City, and he continues to
practice law during his breaks from teaching in the summer.
Immediately following his graduation from the New York University
School of Law, he clerked for Justice Menachem Elon on the Israeli
Supreme Court. There he gained his first perspective on the interplay
between Jewish and secular law. Rabbi Isaacson points to his Aliyah in
1995 as a major turning point in his life. He currently lives in Ramat
Bet Shemesh with his wife Sharon and their seven children. View full teacher description
