Rabbi Yehuda Hausman
Community Educator, Los Angeles
Yehuda was born and raised in southern California. After high school, he spent one year studying at Bar-Ilan University. Following Bar-Ilan, Yehuda attended Brandeis University, graduating with a BA and an MA in Modern Jewish History and Thought. Yehuda was inspired to join YCT by friends who were then students at the yeshiva, as their passion was truly inspiring. While at YCT, Yehuda has held internships at B’nai David-Judea Congregation and Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. He also taught a weekly Talmud class at the Conservative Synagogue of Fifth Avenue. Yehuda and his wife, Aliza, are active members of the Los Angeles community.
