Rabbi Joel Dinin
Semikha, Class of 2015

Rabbi Joel Dinin

Orthodox Rabbi & Director of Education

MIT Hillel

Originally from West Hills, CA, Rabbi Dinin received ordination (Semikha) from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah in 2015. He is a lifelong learner and has teaching experience with every age from 9-93! He brings his personal passions for art, history, science, philosophy and music (jazz, folk, rock and more!) into his rabbinic life, having served as both a pulpit rabbi and part time day school teacher for nearly a decade! Without his amazing experiences as a student at Hillel and Jewish summer camp he wouldn’t be where he is today! Whether he was living in Prague, Israel, or Milwaukee, his heart has always been in New England. He has three wonderful children, Meira, Michael, and Jacob, with his beloved wife Sarah
