Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin

Noted educator, speaker, commentator and author, Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin stands at the Helm of Ohr Torah Stone, which he founded in 1983. Rabbi Riskin’s outstanding contributions to Israel and to world Jewry have made him a leading voice in today’s Modern Orthodox world, and he continues to provide Ohr Torah Stone’s 3,000 students with the ongoing inspiration and vision of the synthesis between Torah values, modern culture and tikkun olam. His belief that the Torah should illuminate the entire world with its inherent sensitivity, love, social justice and tolerance is imbued in each of our rabbis and educators-in-training.
