Rosner’s Torah Talk: Sukkot with Rabbi Steven Henkin


Steven Henkin is the rabbi of Congregation Agudath Achim in Savannah Georgia.  A native of the Chicago suburbs, Rabbi Henkin received his B.A. in Jewish Studies, Religious Studies, and Psychology from the University of Minnesota before moving to Atlanta, where he earned his M.A. in Jewish Studies from Emory University and worked in the religious school at Ahavath Achim Synagogue.  He later moved to Los Angeles to attend the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, where he received his rabbinic ordination and M.A. in Rabbinic Studies in 2014.

Our discussion focuses on Sukkoth, and the commandment to be joyous.
