About Rabbi Fischer

Rabbi Fischer was born and raised in New York City.  During adolescence, he was drawn to a stronger commitment to Jewish tradition, eventually earning rabbinic ordination from Yeshiva University-Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary.  At the same time, he earned a BA in English Literature from Yeshiva University and an MA in English Literature from New York University.

He has served communities in the US, Canada, and Israel as a rabbi, teacher, and cantor.  Using the name Arthur J. Fischer, he has acted and directed for Jerusalem community theaters and has also appeared in a number of films made for the ultra-Orthodox community.

These classes are designed for students ages 12-99; perfect for those who are eager to read and understand the Bible in a deeper and more personal way.

I have worked with Rabbi Fischer in the area of Hebrew teaching for several years, and his deep knowledge of the details and subtleties of Hebrew grammar are impressive. He is also a master at curriculum writing. I am confident he could design a program for your students that would provide a thorough introduction to the Hebrew language
