Rabbi Pinchas Allouche

Congregation Beth Tefillah | Scottsdale, Arizona | 34 years old
Orthodox | Milan, Italy, by Chief Rabbi Gershon M. Garelik

“Rabbi Allouche walked 10 miles to my father’s home on Sukkot to provide us with comfort and counsel when my mother passed away. I don’t know if the 10 miles were made longer in that the destination was a house of mourning or shorter because he carried Torah with him. Along the way he has welcomed me into his family for countless Shabbat and Yom Tov celebrations, asking only that I share in the simcha. Teacher, mentor, father, spiritual leader and friend, Rabbi Allouche has brought to our city a unique combination of Torah wisdom, Talmudic knowledge, Jewish spirituality and worldliness.”
