Rabbi Yakov Horowitz

by @azigra

Rabbi Yakov Horowitz is the dean of Yeshiva Darchei Noam in Monsey, NY and the director of the Center for Jewish Family Life/Project YES. He keeps a good website and blog where he writes about keeping children safe in today's world among many other important issues. 

Rabbi Horowitz was the scholar in residence of a pesach hotel program I went to about 10 years ago and is the only SIR I remember from about eight years of hotels. I cant tell you who they were in any of the other programs I attended. He stood out then in my mind for his sanity and rationalism in a world where rabbis and rosh yeshivas seem to lack both. 

The rabbi is also active on twitter and has posted some great tweets today:
