Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky has been involved in the field of Jewish education and outreach for over thirty years. He grew up in North Merrick, Long Island, one of six boys, of whom, he says, he is the quietest. He studied at Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim and Yeshiva Heichal HaTorah, and for nine years was the Long Island Director of the National Conference of Synagogue Youth. In 1988, Rabbi Orlofsky moved to Israel, where he lives in Yerushalayim with his wife Simi and their children and grandchildren. He now teaches in various yeshivos and seminaries in Israel.
Several years ago, ArtScroll was privileged to publish Everyone’s Entitled to My Opinion – The Wisdom and Wit of Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky, containing fascinating insights and practical advice from Rabbi Orlofsky, a one-of-a-kind phenomenon in the world of Jewish thought. A globe-trotting speaker and beloved teacher, he takes a blunt, honest, always wise and often very funny look at our lives as observant Jews. He finds what’s wrong and shows us how to make it right. He inspires us to reach higher than we ever believed we could, just by doing just a little bit more, becoming a little bit better.
That’s why this special Inside ArtScroll interview with Rabbi Orlofsky is a treat for the senses. If you’ve ever heard Rabbi Orlofsky speak, you’ll know how transformative – and entertaining – his lectures and message are. And if you haven’t yet had the privilege of hearing him, prepare for an exhilarating experience that will show you how to live better, live higher, and be the best Jew you can be.
