Rabbi Adir Yolkut
A St. Louisian by birth and nature, Rabbi Adir Yolkut is currently living in White Plains, New York with his wife, Lauren, where he serves as the Associate Rabbi at Temple Israel Center. He was ordained by the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in 2016 with a concentration in Jewish law. In his 5 years as a Rabbi, he has worked at a synagogue and a private Jewish High School. He is passionate about creating alternative prayer/spiritual opportunities, building community outside of the four walls of the synagogue, and teaching and preaching content that is authentic and responsive to real world events and issues.
When he am not Rabbi-ing, he and his wife love to travel. Some of their favorite spots have been Croatia, Indonesia, and Singapore. They enjoy hiking and adventuring, especially when it involves a beach. Rabbi Yolkut is also an avid CrossFit fan. At home, he loves to cook, brew his own coffee, and to his wife (and their closet’s chagrin), collect and wear sneakers. He is a huge sports fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues and Missouri Tigers basketball and football teams. Beyond all of that, he is always game to talk pop culture!
