With summer vacation over and students and teachers back in the classroom,
31-year-old Rabbi Ariel Tal, a Toronto native who made aliya with his family at
the age of 10, has begun his new job as a teacher of Judaic studies at Kibbutz
Lavi in the North.Tal is confident that his stint over the past four
years serving as a rabbinical emissary both in Vancouver and Toronto has
prepared him for his career as a full-time educator in Israel.
