Eliezer Ben-Yehuda

Rabbi Eliezer Ben-Yehuda was born in Jerusalem, a descendent of illustrious scholars and authors.  His grandfather, Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, a pre-Zionist visionary and pioneer of Jewish national renaissance and resettlement in Eretz-Yisrael, was a writer, lexicographer, newspaper editor, teacher (first to teach an entire curriculum in Hebrew) and statesman.
Rabbi Eliezer studied at McGill University in Montreal, at Sir George Williams (later Concordia) University and the University of Montreal.  After the birth of his first child, Itamar, he moved to Massachusetts, where he attended Boston University.  He has served as a teacher and pulpit rabbi, Jewish chaplain and university campus rabbi.

Rabbi Ben Yehuda has published magazine and newspaper articles in Hebrew, English, and French, on Judaism, the Holocaust, Zionism and the rebirth of Israel. He was the editor of the Rosetta Stone Hebrew Language computer program, Levels I & II, and has written two books.
