RABBI MAURICE APPELBAUM
Rabbi, Congregation Ahavas Israel (2009-2019)
Maurice served as Rabbi at the Greenpoint Shul from 2009-2019.
Over that time, he oversaw the growth of the community and membership as Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Long Island City enjoyed a renaissance in culture and population growth. He, along with our lay leaders, helped cultivate events such as monthly Friday night dinners with speakers, holiday programming, and other events which attracted a diverse group of attendees. Maurice received Semicha from Avi Weiss at Yeshivat Chovevei Torah in Riverdale.
