Rav Binyamin Zimmerman

Rav Binyamin Zimmerman [YHE '96] received his Semikha and his Masters in Secondary Jewish Education from Yeshiva University. After beginning his spiritual growth at Yeshivat Har Etzion, he spent time studying under some of the great Talmudic giants of the generation in order to learn from their styles, and blend them with the skills and training he acquired from Rosh Yeshiva HaRav Aharon Lichtenstein. His desire to bridge various approaches in Judaism also led to his in depth study of Jewish thought, combining ideas of Chassidim, Mitnagdim and others to a practical approach to modern questions of outlook and philosophy. Some of these ideas are expressed in his series on Jewish Ethics on The Virtual Beit Midrash. After beginning his teaching career in other yeshivot he decided to return to the Yeshiva where his growth began, to continue to develop in his spiritual home, and to aid the students in the yeshiva to achieve a broad based approach to Jewish learning and life.
