Meet Rabbi Travis
Today Rabbi Travis is a renowned Rosh Kollel, author and speaker, who inspires countless people with his deeper view of the significance of life's challenges.
His journey began as a teen in the Bronx where he turned his back on a future as an Olympian and Ivy League scholar to go study Torah in Jerusalem. After finding his place in the Holy City's finest yeshivas, his life was changed again by a cataclysmic car accident, where he was saved from certain death to the wonder of the doctors.
Guided by some of the greatest rabbis of the generation, Rabbi Travis has since forged a unique path in learning and guiding other young rabbis, as well as Jews around the world.
About Toras Chaim
The Toras Chaim Rabbinical Leadership Institute, founded by Rabbi Travis in 2003, trains rabbis who are thoroughly versed in Halacha and committed to take up positions of leadership and service in Jewish communities around the world. It is educating the knowledgeable, English-speaking rabbis of the next generation.
Though there are many learned rabbis and laymen in Israel, many have never studied Halachic texts in-depth and don’t have the skills to derive Halacha using the necessary range of sources. In English-speaking Orthodox communities around the world, the problem is even more acute.
Rabbi Travis' students at Kollel Toras Chaim dedicate years to full-time study towards rabbinic ordination, with the goal of going out and making a positive impact on Jews worldwide as rabbis, educators and poskim.
