Dear United with Israel Members,

Greetings and Blessings from the Holy Land!

Allow me to briefly introduce myself. I’m Rabbi Ari Enkin and I am the new Rabbinic Advisor & Director of Community Outreach for United with Israel.

Originally from Montreal, Canada I moved to Israel just over 6 years ago. When I’m not in the United with Israel office I enjoy teaching Torah and writing my “Dalet Amot Halacha Series” of books on contemporary issues in Jewish Law. (Volume IV to be out shortly!). I’m married to Shayna with four cuties at home.

Folks, let me just put it this way: When you live in the Diaspora – you watch Jewish history as it unfolds. When you live in Israel – you are a part of it.


In over 2000 years there has never been a return to the land as we are experiencing today. This is but one of the many biblical prophecies that are unfolding right in front of our eyes today!

We hope you will enjoy this new feature – “The Rabbi’s Study”, which will feature thoughts on issues of interest relating to Israel and the Jewish world. I welcome your comments, feedback, and topic ideas for future columns.

I look forward to communicating with you and hopefully meeting some of you in person during your next trip to Israel.

With the Love of the People and the Land of Israel,

Rabbi Ari Enkin
