Rabbi YY Rubenstein

Rabbi Y.Y. Rubinstein

Rabbi Rubinstein was born in Glasgow, Scotland and moved to England when he was twenty. Before moving to the US in September 2011 he was a familiar figure on National BBC TV and Radio being a regular on several programs, including the “Terry Wogan show” with 15 Million listeners and BBC World Service with a minimum audience of 156 Million. Her Majesty the Queen asked to meet him declaring that he was, “Awfully good.”

With his Scottish accent, he combines a keen sense of humor with a sharp intellect. This combination allows him to comment on serious issues affecting the Jewish community specifically, as well bringing a Jewish perspective to moral and ethical discussions on topics that affect everyone. He is well known for having a gift to bring obscure Jewish ideas and practice to life through simple and clear explanation replete with laughter too. Rabbi YY has sometimes been described as a “Kosher” Craig Ferguson, a fellow Scot.
