Rabbi Ari Perl
Over the course of my 17 yrs in the rabbinate, I have found the Masters degree I earned in Modern Jewish History to be an invaluable asset in understanding both the challenges and opportunities of the modern Jewish world in which we live. In addition to sharing my passion for Jewish History with my congregation (the Jewish Center of Atlantic Beach), I have always enjoyed sharing it with High School students as well. By helping them understand how today's Jewish world, especially in the U.S. and Israel, has been impacted by the events and ideas of previous decades and centuries, we
empower them with the tools to recognize their opportunity, and even responsibility, to shape our Jewish future.
