Rabbi Mendy Benhiyoun 
Mendy was born and raised in Lincoln Park. He spent three years at a Yeshiva (Talmudic academy) in the suburbs of Paris, France. He then he moved on to a Yeshiva in Frankfurt, Germany where he was able to not only study extensive Jewish texts but he also got to live with the Jewish community there and get an up close look at life amongst this fascinating and close knit Jewish community. His rabbinical journey took him back to the States where he completed his Yeshiva education in New Haven and Brooklyn. 

 

Mrs. Brocha Benhiyoun
