Rabbi Eli Itzkowitz, a Baltimore native, joined us from Chicago, where he was a Rebbe at Yeshivas Tiferes Tzvi for thirteen years. Rabbi Itzkowitz’s classroom is a remarkable place where children learn to associate Torah and Mitzvos with simcha, excitement and success. He is known for developing warm, genuine relationships with his talmidim and taking interest in enabling every talmid to reach his full potential. Rabbi Itzkowitz’s specialized skills include teaching kriah (reading), mentoring junior rebbeim, differentiated teaching, social skills development, and techniques in AP (active participation). He participated in numerous specialized training courses under the auspices of the Associated Talmud Torah’s of Chicago, from whom he earned teacher certification and tenure. Rabbi Itzkowitz is a graduate of the Torah Educator’s Institute in Har Nof, Jerusalem, directed by Rabbi Hillel Mandel. He was the director of Pirchei Chicago and has been the director of a highly successful boys summer camp for the past ten years. Rabbi Itzkowitz learned at Yeshiva of Long Beach, Yeshivas Ner Yisroel, Bais Midrash Govoha, and Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim.
