Allison and Rabbi Kevin Wolf
Communal Service Award
Allison and Kevin first met steps away from the Western Wall in 2017. In 2018, they got married and moved to Israel for the year, where Allison studied at Hebrew University and Kevin studied in yeshiva and received rabbinic ordination. Upon their return to NY, Allison and Kevin craved a community where they can share words of Torah and give back — and they found the perfect match with Rabbi Wildes and MJE! For the past 3.5 years, Kevin and Allison have been teaching Torah classes, learning with community members, leading Shabbat services, and hosting wholesome shabbat and holiday meals. They are incredibly grateful to MJE for giving them the opportunity to make a difference on the Upper West Side, and thankful to the MJE participants who inspire them daily with their curiosity and passion for Judaism. Allison and Kevin welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Eden, to the world this past May.
Kevin is originally from Bergenfield, NJ and studied Computer Science at the University of Michigan, where he was able to garner a following of dedicated spiritual seekers who attended his weekly Shiur with Beer. After graduating, he studied at Yeshivat Torah V’Avodah and received rabbinic ordination. When Kevin is not teaching, he works as Product Manager for Flatiron Health, a health tech company. Lastly, Kevin is also a passionate snowboarder, avid Citi biker, relentless audiobook listener, and competitive ping-pong player (challengers welcome).
Allison, originally from Queens, graduated as salutatorian from the Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College. Her passion for Torah study grew during her time abroad in Israel, learning at Midreshet Harova, Hebrew University, and the OU/JLIC program at Yeshivat Orayta. Allison was also a fellow on The Nachshon Project, a Jewish leadership program that focuses on creating and strengthening Jewish communities in North America. When Allison is not grabbing a cup of coffee with a community member or leading MJE events, she works as a Product Marketer at Order.co.
