Rabbi Moshe Sokoloff
Rabbi Sokoloff studied in Yeshiva Shaar HaTorah for over 16 years and received his Smicha from the Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Kalman Epstein. With his unique ability to clarify a sugya and quote sources on any given topic, Rabbi Sokoloff has taught Halacha in Yeshiva Ateres Yaakov (5 years) and gives 2 popular weekly shiurim in the Young Israel of Woodmere (available on the YU Torah website). With his wife, Mindy, and their four children, Adina, Meir, Zahava, and Chaim, his close proximity to the Yeshiva means that he’s always available for the Talmidim no matter what question they may have.
