The Team

Rabbi Shneur is a young, dynamic Rabbi. He joined ARK Centre in 2010 and since then has led the Centre with his trademark enthusiasm and passion making Modern Orthodox more accessible to the families and friends of the Centre. Rabbi Shneur has a strong commitment to family so you’ll almost always see his wife Lisa and sons Noam and Osher at our services and events.
