After earning his B.A. degree from Brandeis University, Rabbi Kahn went to Rabbinical School at the Jewish Theological Seminary and then became the Congregational Rabbi at Beth El Synagogue in Minneapolis for 15 years. In 2008, he made Aliyah with his family and settled in Jerusalem. He began as the Education Director at Young Judaea Year Course, and is currently a freelance tour guide and director of Israel programs for the Golda Och Academy in West Orange, NJ. Rob is the son of longtime Neveh Shalom members Judith and Garry Kahn.

* Over the years young Portlanders have moved on and established a name for themselves in a wide variety of fields. This series will bring some of them back to Portland to share their insights in their respective areas.
