R’ Moshe and Saara come to JLIC at Johns Hopkins University from Providence, RI where they have each spent over a decade on campus at Brown University.

R’ Moshe grew up in New York and Montreal prior to attending the New England Rabbinical College in Providence, RI where he earned a degree in Rabbinics. He spent two years in Jerusalem where he learned under Rabbi Moshe Wolpin and subsequently taught at a yeshiva for American teens-at-risk before returning to Providence. R’ Moshe is a BBQ enthusiast, coffee addict, and Pachad Yitzchak stan. In 2014, Forward Magazine recognized R’ Moshe as one of “America’s Most Inspiring Rabbis”.

Rabbi Moshe Moskowitz and Saara Moskowitz

Saara moved around a lot while growing up, and considers herself a “Midwestern Texan from Baltimore.” During her undergraduate years, Saara attended colleges in Chicago, St. Louis, and Baltimore and where she studied Judaic Studies and Web & Graphic Design (it was an “up and coming” field back then!). Saara recently earned her M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration. While the Moskowitz girls keep Saara a little too busy for hobbies, she does try to make time for her volunteer work educating caregivers about car seat safety in her role as a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician. She also enjoys reading and baking, and once went “viral” on TikTok with challah braiding tutorials.
