About Rabbi Goode

Our esteemed Menahel, Rabbi Goode directs the development of the Yesodei HaTorah curriculum and methodology, guides its implementation, and sees to the many fund-raising and non-curricular necessities of running an educational institution. His mission for Yesodei HaTorah is to make the beauty and excitement of Torah study available to any Jew regardless of background. Rabbi Goode, is a musmach (ordained Rabbi) of Yeshivas Ner Yisroel. A talmid of both the Yeshiva’s founder, Rav Ruderman z”tl, and the late Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Weinberg z”tl, he learned in both the Beis Medrash and the Kollel for a total of 15 years. Through his work as director of Yesodei HaTorah, he continues the Torah-mission of his mentors. Says Rabbi Goode, “The whole process of learning . . . creates a special bond between the student and the Torah. My goal as both Menahel and instructor is to be `a catalyst’ for the students’ enjoyment of learning, to help them forge that bond with the Torah.” “When I see my talmidim understanding the Gemora, enjoying it, becoming excited, trying to find ways to make more time to learn, and making Torah more central in their lives; then I am energized and fulfilled.”
