Our Team

A Collaborative & Diverse Group

Rabbi Yehuda Albin

Founder & Educator

As the founder of The Ember Foundation and TORAHUB, Yehuda has “built” a synagogue and school without walls. Since moving to Chicago in 1994, he has personally touched hundreds of people with his engaging educational style. Raised in Scarsdale, NY, in a Reform home, and educated at Bowdoin College,

he earned his rabbinic ordination during a decade of Torah study in Jerusalem.

Rabbi Danny Muskat

Educator

Danny has been with TORAHUB for ten years (and had eleven years of similar work before that). His

warm and caring personality, Jewish knowledge, and keen intellectual perspective on life make him a sought-after instructor. He was born in Chicago, then raised in a traditional home in Toronto. His rabbinical education is rounded out by a BA in business administration.

With his warmth and scholarship, Baruch inspired disconnected Jewish students on college campuses for three years before joining TORAHUB. Before that, Baruch spent over nine years in Israel studying, which culminated with his rabbinic ordination. He is from a small Californian town, where he grew up Reform and received a BA from U.C. Berkeley.

Yearly Purim Campaign

Donations can we made via Zelle @ info@torahub.org or at the DONATE page below

100% Give-away to Those Who are Impoverished

Here's the 2021 year's summary report for our Purim Gifts to the Poor Campaign.


Thanks to our donors, I can humbly report that we raised approximately $30,000 dollars, exceeding our total from last year by about $5,000.  We were able to add to the number of people we gave as well as increasing the check for most of the previous recipients.  They were received by....


1)    One divorcé from Deerfield with an ex-husband who refuses to make his support payments, and yes, she is not Orthodox.

2)    A sixty year old, who is somewhat physically disabled woman, and unemployed, who often does not have enough money for her food bill.

3)    A teacher living with a very large family.

4)    A divorcé with one child in college limping by on three hourly jobs with an ex-husband who is mentally ill and incapable of providing for his fair share of their daughter's education and basic needs.

5)    A poor Israeli family, with many children, whose past problems have included not being able to fix their water heater.   Not much has changed at their household.

6)    Another Israeli family that is so poor they cannot pay their heating bill regularly.

7)    One couple with children who are three months behind in their rent and in danger of losing their apartment.

8)    Americans in Israel, a successful contractor, whose business closed, and now has been out of work for a few years.

9)    A family who had their sustenance shut down by Covid.  The husband and wife have not been able to work for 12 months.

10)  A formerly employed person and his family, that is so embarrassed to be receiving charity that we are not supposed to publish any details. 

11)  A large family, he is a computer programmer, that just cannot make ends meet, compounded by the fact that they have to make a wedding, even though it will still be extremely modest.


All the checks were distributed by Rabbi Albin to each person on Purim or to their halachic representative.


May we merit to do more mitzvahs.


A heartfelt thank you, 

Yehuda Albin, Daniel Muskat, Baruch Tuman & Faith Newman
