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.
