Rabbi Gavriel Jacknin
Rabbi Jacknin, more affectionately known as Rabbi J was born on Long Island, New York (Originally a Mets fan) and lived in Queens for most of his youth. A graduate of SUNY Binghamton, Rabbi J has a Bachelors of Science in Marketing and Management. During his college years, Rabbi Jacknin developed a passion and love for Judaism which led him to study for many years in various Yeshivas including Aish, Shar Yashuv and the Mirrer. Eventually, this love for Judaism led Rabbi J to his Rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Zalman Nechemia Goldberg of Jerusalem to fulfill his mission of spreading the 'Joy of Judaism.'
In October 2010, Rabbi J & his wife Michal founded the Bellaire Jewish Center. A Jewish center to spread the joy of Judaism through outstanding programming, inspiring & informative classes, meaningful services & AWESOME parties. Besides learning and teaching Torah, Rabbi Jacknin enjoys tennis, softball, jogging (Ran NYC marathon at age 20), all people, and a good cup of iced coffee. Call or email Rabbi J anytime to set up an appointment to meet, study or shmooze about anything.
