Ms. Halle Farber
Communications Director
& Assistant to Rabbi Shoshan

Halle Farber joined the Ahavas Torah staff in December 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, creating flyers and marketing campaigns for the shul, updating the web site, and communicating the breadth of learning and programming taking place at Ahavas Torah.  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.
 
When not working for Ahavas Torah, she volunteers as a Community Leader for Jewish Journeys, an outreach organization connected to JInspire and the Jewish Women's Renaissance Project (JWRP). Formerly, she was the Executive Director of the Jewish Genetics Diseases Center of Greater Phoenix, and she is a graduate of Cornell University.  But more importantly, she and her family were active members of Ahavas Torah for three years before they relocated to the New Jersey area, and they credit Rabbi Shoshan and the shul community with a tremendous part of their growth as Torah-observant Jews.
