He was the rabbinic intern for about a year.
From canonist.com July 2006: “It’s all-YCT, all-the-time here at Canonist this week. Anyway, for as much as the delay in certification by the RCA might be setting the yeshiva back, it scored a pretty major coup recently when recent graduate R’ Jason Weiner was hired as a rabbinic intern by the Young Israel of Century City. The rabbi there, Elazar Muskin, is an RCA heavyweight.”
Although Rabbi Weiner was born in New York, he grew up in Southern California. After high school he attended Hebrew University of Jerusalem and California State University, Monterey Bay, where he received his B.A. in 2000. While at CSUMB he founded and led a Jewish Student Union and also became the director of Camp Gan Israel of Chabad of South Bay.
After graduating college, Rabbi Weiner returned to New York for six years where he received his rabbinical training. He attended Yeshiva Ohr Sameach in Monsey for two years, followed by Yeshivat Chovevei Torah for four years. During his time at YCT he served as a rabbinic intern at Congregation Ahavas Achim in Highland Park, New Jersey, and the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale. Rabbi Weiner earned his Rabbinic Ordination from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah in 2006 as well as an additional Ordination from Rav Zalman Nechemia Goldberg in Jerusalem. Rabbi Weiner also earned a Masters degree in Jewish History from the Bernard Revel Graduate School at Yeshiva University in 2006.
Rabbi Weiner has published articles in the Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society, Milin Havivin, Jewish Life: Traditional Living in Los Angeles, as well as the West Coast OU?s weekly Parsha Insights.
Rabbi Weiner’s wife Lauren is from Los Angeles and is a fantastic mother to their children, Kayla Rachel and Yaacov Melech.
