Rabbi Aaron Katz combines his deep love of study with an engaging personality to attract and inspire Jews of all ages and from all walks of life. He draws on his decades of experience working with people of many different cultures around the world to counsel, console and celebrate warmly with the community throughout the year.  He considers members of B’nai Jacob to be family and takes the time to be a part of their lives.  Rabbi Aaron is actively involved in many social causes and has volunteered his time with charities such as Chicken Soup, Mazon, the LGBT Center and several homeless shelters.  He hopes that you will join him in his mission of keeping Jewish identity, education and values alive and well for centuries to come.

Before joining B’nai Jacob, he was the Senior Rabbi of Shofar in Los Angeles, CA and has served as a Congregational Rabbi in Spain, Sweden, Poland, Miami Beach and Los Angeles.  He has also worked as the Scholar-in-Residence for synagogues in Miami, Broward, Austin, Los Angeles, the Caribbean and Israel.  Rabbi Aaron has had his work published in several magazines and newspapers in  the USA, Sweden, Spain and Israel. It comes as no surprise that he is fluent in six languages.

Rabbi Aaron holds a Doctorate in Comparative Religion and Philosophy, a Masters Degree in Jewish Philosophy from Jerusalem and was appointed a Family Law Judge in Tel Aviv. He had the great honor of studying with Rabbi Kook Z”L and Rabbi Shapiro Z”L.  He was ordained as a Rabbi in Israel, by both the Chief Orthodox Sephardic Rabbi Yosef Z”L and the Chief Orthodox Ashkenazi Rabbi Goren Z”L.
