Rabbi David Abrahamovitz
Rabbi David Abrahamovitz was born in Toronto, Canada, and has been living in Israel since 2004. For over a decade, he has been teaching Bible Studies and Jewish Law in Jerusalem.
David studied Jewish History throughout his life and all four of his grandparents were Holocaust survivors. Nonetheless, only after his first visit to Poland did he begin to comprehend the enormity of Polish Jewish History and the Holocaust.
He intensively studied Polish Jewry and the Holocaust and then began leading Poland tours for groups from all over the world. Since 2007, he has led countless successful Poland tours. His trips are educational and meaningful. His guiding is informative and always enthused with passion.
When not guiding for “The World That Was”, Rav David can often be found furthering his research.
