Rabbi Landon joined the Lower Elementary classroom at OTC one year ago.  After over 13 years of teaching in more traditional Jewish Day Schools and trying to personalize his approach to meet the needs of his students, he was excited to have the opportunity to join the dynamic team at OTC.  He comes with a Bachelor’s in Judaic Studies from Tannenbaum College of Jerusalem, a teacher’s certificate from the Israeli Misrad HaDatot, and rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Zalman Nechemia Goldberg of Jerusalem. The Landon family have lived in Des Moines, Iowa, and Savannah, Georgia over the past 16 years and are thrilled to be making their home with their 6 children here in Cincinnati.  What Rabbi Landon loves most about teaching at Ohr Torah Cincinnati is feeling that he finally has the ability to help his students unlock their full potential as lifelong learners and to develop a strong, enduring relationship with Hashem.
