Rabbi Baruch Plotkin

University of Miami Hillel | Miami, Florida | 43 years old
Orthodox | Yeshivat Darche Noam/Shapells

“I am 81 years old and when I finish Rabbi Plotkin’s class each week, I feel as if I have been studying with a lamed-vavnik. Not only has my mind expanded, but my spirit as well. He is non-judgmental, respectful and deeply inspiring. His work with UM Hillel has been exceptional, bringing Judaism and inspiration to hundreds of students through Hillel activities as well as Birthright. He is effective because he is genuine. He lives the life he professes, but he respects each one of us along with our diverse beliefs. I have met many rabbis in my eight decades, but he exceeds them all!”
