About Rav Eisenman


Rav Ron Yitzchok Eisenman has lead Congregation Ahavas Israel since 1997.

His warmth, charisma, and active involvement in community issues have not only enabled the Shul to grow significantly, but also made him a beloved Rav in the entire Passaic-Clifton community.

Rav Eisenman successfully disseminates Torah both in the oral and written word. His Short Vort has quickly become a daily staple in hundreds of households throughout the country and abroad.

He teaches daily at the Shul, giving Daf Yomi and many other Shiurim.

On Shabbos he teaches six different classes, and in the winter he hosts a very popular Friday night tisch which attracts men, women and kids from all over the neighborhood.

Born in Brooklyn, he is a musmach of Yeshivas Rabbeinu Yitzchok Elchanon and at Yehsivos in Eretz Yisroel.

After learning in Kollel for six years and receiving Smicha Yoreh Yoreh from Rav Yosef Dov Soleveitchik, Ztz"l and Yadin Yadin from the Kollel L’dayanus he began his career serving the Jewish community.

Rabbi Eisenman first taught at the Manhattan Talmudic Academy in Washington Heights and from there went on to teach for 12 years at the Yeshiva North Jersey. Subsequent to those positions, he has taught at Bruriah High School for Girls, and at the Bais Yaakov of Passaic High School for Girls.

As the kehilla grew so did his responsibilities at the Shul. Rabbi Eisenman now spends the majority of the day involved with the kehiila, and its members.

He is a sought after speaker and scholar in residence in many communities throughout the metropolitan area and author of the book The Elephant in the Room: Torah, Wisdom, & Inspiration for Life.

Rav Eisenman is blessed with a wonderful Rebbetzin as well as children and grandchildren.
