Rabbi ephraim epstein



Rabbi  Ephraim Epstein received his Semicha (ordination) from HaRav Berel Wein Shlitta in Jerusalem.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Boston University and an ED.S degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from The College of New Jersey. 

Prior to arriving at Congregation Sons of Israel in 5761/2000, Rabbi Epstein and his wife, Debi, resided in Israel. While there, he founded and served as a coordinator and lecturer at the Center for Torah Studies in Jerusalem, a division of Ohr Somayach International. During that time, he taught Talmud, Tanach and Ethics to hundreds of students. Rabbi Epstein also traveled to North America, where he lectured on a myriad of Torah topics at synagogues, conventions and universities.

Rabbi Epstein teaches an array of classes throughout the week at Sons of Israel and is a sought after speaker by local organizations as well as outside communities. He also writes a weekly column found here on our website and is a frequent contributor to regional and international periodicals. 

Our rabbi serves as the Rav HaMachshir of our local Vaad HaKashruth - The Cherry K, the Community Eruv, our Chevra Kaddisha and the Mikvah here on our campus. Rabbi Epstein was also chosen to serve on the New Jersey Holocaust Commission, The Cherry Hill Human Rights Council and as a Cherry Hill Police Chaplain.

Rabbi Epstein along with his wife Debi and their family welcome guests to their home regularly and look forward to welcoming you when you come to Cherry Hill.
