I first attended LCM in the fall of 2002 after graduating from Yeshiva Gedola high school in Montreal. At that time, there were about 80 talmidim who all knew one other. I spent one year in LCM and then went to Yeshivas Midrash Shmuel in Israel for a year and a half. I returned to LCM in January 2005, finished college and learned in the Kollel until August 2009. I then started optometry school at the SUNY State College of Optometry in Manhattan.

 After graduating from optometry school in 2013, I worked at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx for 2+ years. I recently began a new position at Advantage Care Physicians working in the department of Ophthalmology.

I am grateful to all my Rabbeim, specifically Rabbi Bronspigel Shlit"a, for infusing me with Torah and hadracha for 4 years. I also appreciate the work of the natural sciences faculty, particularly Dr. Ann Shinnar, for having prepared me for optometry school.

I am married to Devorah Maybruch and we are Baruch Hashem blessed with beautiful children. I am fortunate to live a few blocks away from LCM where I can stop by to learn in the beis medrash. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and following sports.
