The Calling: Shmuly Yanklowitz

Shmuly Yanklowitz is an intellectual rabbinical student at New York City’s Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School — and a passionate activist. A Modern Orthodox Jew, he feels compelled to break boundaries — to resist becoming an old-style rabbi stuck within the walls of the synagogue.
