Aryeh A. Frimer

Rabbi Dr. Aryeh A. Frimer graduated from Brooklyn College in 1969, and at the same time received his Rabbinical Ordination from the late Rabbi Yehudah Gershuni. While a graduate student in organic chemistry at Harvard University, Rabbi Frimer served as Rabbi to the Harvard-Radcliffe Hillel Orthodox Minyan from 1969-1974. Upon completing his Ph.D., he made Aliyah becoming a Post-Doctoral Fellow at The Weizmann Institute of Science, before joining the faculty of Bar Ilan in 1975. In addition to his scientific work, Rabbi Frimer has lectured on Judaism, Zionism and Jewish Identity for officer training courses of the Israel Defense Forces. He has also published and lectured internationally on various aspects of Jewish tradition and Halakha, but most prominently on the Status of Women in Jewish Law. Aryeh and his wife Esther are the proud parents of four children and 12 grandchildren, and live in Rehovot.
