Rabbi Gidon Moskovitz

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rabbi Moskovitz has been the Rabbi of our Young Israel Congregation since the summer of 2021. He received his semichah from Rabbi Yitzchak Berkovitz shlit”a of The Jerusalem Kollel, where Rabbi Moskovitz is still well known, having authored the study guides that semichah students continue to use today.

Before his studies in The Jerusalem Kollel, Rabbi Moskovitz worked in in the asset management field in New York City for a financial services firm, where he was quickly promoted to supervisor. He entered that field shortly after having graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from Baruch College (CUNY), where he was recognized as class salutatorian. Rabbi Moskovitz attended Baruch College in the evenings and summers, while spending his days learning Torah at Yeshivas Zichron Dovid.


Rabbi Moskovitz is also a writer and editor of various Torah books. He has written major portions of Artscoll’s recent translation of Sefer HaChinuch (The Book of Mitzvos), Shaarei Teshuvah, Or HaChaim, and The Chumash with the Teachings of the Talmud. He has also served as a General Editor for Ohr Olam’s new translation of the Mishnah Berurah. 
Before coming to Florida, Rabbi Moskovitz was the rabbi of a shul in Houston Texas, The Meyerland Minyan Synagogue, for sixteen years. Over his tenure there, the community flourished growing from a weekly minyan at the local JCC to a full-service shul with its own building. 


Rabbi Moskovitz’s wife, Malka, is a mental health therapist (LPC) by profession. In addition, she is actively involved in our community, giving classes for women, facilitating women’s discussion groups, hosting meals, and serving as a confidant, friend, and rebbetzin to the women of our shul. Rabbi and Malka Moskovitz have five children, and the entire family is excited to be a part of our B”H growing community.
