     American-born Rabbi Ahron Hecht attended Tomchei Tmimim Yeshiva in KfarChabad, Israel, where he was ordained by the former Chief Rabbi, Ovadia Yosef.  He continued post-graduate studies at the Yeshiva Kolel in Melbourne, Australia, where he also served as a lecturer at Monash University and  taught extensively throughout Australia and New Zealand. 

        He, his wife Sara, and their twelve children currently live in the Richmond district of San Francisco.  Their home is always open on Shabbat or at any time someone needs a place to shmooze. 

     "A rabbi should serve as a teacher and friend, not just an orator," Rabbi Hecht has said.  His ability to blend the mystical and logical makes his teaching particularly appealing to modern Jew.
