Rabbi David Walk

Rabbi Walk was born on the Fourth of July 1950 in Malden, MA, a suburb of Boston. He attended public school, and became interested in orthodox Judaism during High School through a combination of NCSY  Shabbatonim and friends who dragged him to Brookline to hear Rabbi Soloveitchik every Motzei Shabbat.

After Malden High it was off to Yeshiva University, where Rabbi Walk became heavily involved in New Jersey NCSY, and was Regional Director, 1974-75. Life after YU included four years teaching at Rabbi Riskin’s High School in Riverdale, NY, and then four years teaching elementary school at the Hebrew Academy of Atlantic County, Margate, NJ. Then in 1983, it was Aliya. Rabbi Walk taught at Yeshivat Hamivtar in Efrat with Rabbi Riskin and Rabbi Brovender, until 2001. In the middle of that tenure, Rabbi Walk found time for two years in South Florida as a Shaliach for the Southern Region of NCSY, and a little time for undistinguished, but rewarding, IDF service.

In 2001, Rabbi Walk returned to the States for four years, which became 16. He taught Middle School at the Jewish day school in Stamford, CT (BCDS), and was Education Director at Cong. Agudath Sholom, finally returning to Eretz Yisrael, August 2017.

Rabbi Walk lives in Baka with his wife Rivka where they enjoy life in the Holy Land and find time for their 33 grandchildren. Rabbi Walk teaches twice a week at the OU Center in Jerusalem, at Yeshivat Orayta in the Old City and gives sundry lectures around the country. He was Scholar-in-Residence for AACI  Pesach Tour-5779.
