Rabbi Zvi has spent six years in Israel and received rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Yitzchak Berkovits. While in Israel he founded The English Minyan, a dynamic community for English speaking families, and set up the Purim Xperience - which took yeshiva students to kibbutzim around the country to run Purim parties and Megillah readings. In 2014, Rabbi Zvi and his family moved to Whitefield, Manchester, where their home has become a learning and socialising hub for teens and young professionals.  He is the Director of the Aish Manchester Branch, teaching in schools, campuses and within the wider community.
