Rabbi Aaron Leibowitz
A lecture describing Rav Aaron’s alternative Kosher supervision project Hashgacha Pratit that has been making waves in Israel, disrupting the troublesome dynamics between religion and state.

His smicha is from Rabbis Shlomo Riskin and Chaim Brovender. He is an Orthodox City Council member who believes in an inclusive and pluralistic city. He is also a master teacher, a gifted storyteller, and a serial social troublemaker.
