Rabbi Robby Charnoff is the first ever OU-JLIC Rabbi at Queens College. He was born and raised in New York. He spent two years studying at Yeshivat Netiv Aryeh in the Old City of Jerusalem. He subsequently attended Yeshiva University where he graduated summa cum laude with a BA in psychology. Rabbi Charnoff received semikah from Yeshiva University’s RIETS rabbinic program as well as from R. Zalman Nechemia Goldberg of the Rabbinical High Court in Jerusalem. He obtained a Master’s Degree from the Azrieli School of Jewish Education and Administration and is currently in YU’s certificate program in Experiential Jewish Education. Rabbi Charnoff served as the rabbinic intern at Congregation Ohab Zedek’s on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and has been a guest lecturer at many synagogues throughout the New York area, including the Young Israel of Woodmere, Lincoln Square Synagogue, the Manhattan Jewish Center, the Irving Place Minyan, and the Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills. Rabbi Charnoff coined the phrase “turning a commuter campus into a Queens College Jewish community” and he and his wife have accomplished just that. They have been instrumental in establishing consistent Shabbat and holiday programming, daily learning opportunities, exciting events, and a warm home on campus for the 1,000+ Orthodox students at Queens College. Rabbi Charnoff is also the driving force behind the new daily women’s Torah learning program on campus, HaMidrasha @ QC.
