Mr. Chaim Zimmerman

Administrator, Gabbai
 
Chaim Zimmerman serves multiple roles at Ahavas Torah.  Since 2015, he has served as Gabbai, while also teaching and leading our Daf Yomi program and aspects of our programming for children of all ages.  He was previously our shul administrator from 2015 until 2018, when he scaled back his role to focus on becoming a nursing home administrator.  In early 2021, we welcomed him back to his role as the part-time shul Administrator.  
 
R' Chaim, as his students have often called him, is an experienced Torah teacher, who was a member of the staff of Fuchs Mizrachi School, Jewish Family Experience, Green Road Synagogue, and NCSY -- all in Cleveland -- from 2011 through 2015.  He has published many study guides for NCSY and Torah Umesorah.  Chaim is a graduate with honors from San Diego State University (BA English '07), and has studied in well known Yeshivos and Kollelim.  He is a native of Chicago, and a graduate of Skokie Yeshiva's Fasman High School.   Chaim and wife Tzivia are parents of seven children.

Mrs. Halle Farber
Communications Director
& Assistant to Rabbi Shoshan

Halle Farber joined the Ahavas Torah staff in 2018 as the part-time Communications Director and Assistant to Rabbi Shoshan, working remotely from Teaneck, NJ.  Halle is responsible for producing the weekly Shabbos newsletter and communicating the breadth of programming that takes place at the shul.  She works behind-the-scenes with the Rabbis and staff to ensure seamless fundraising and programming initiatives and acts as Rabbi Shoshan's right hand, as needed.

Formerly, she owned a business that designed and sold specialty exam tables tailored to people with physical disabilities and consulted on accessibility projects.  She was also the Executive Director of the Jewish Genetics Diseases Center of Greater Phoenix, and she graduated from Cornell University.  But more importantly, she and her family were active members of Ahavas Torah for three years before they relocated to New Jersey, and they credit Rabbi Shoshan and the shul community with a tremendous part of their growth as Torah-observant Jews.
