Rabbi Mike Rovinsky
Following a successful career in formal education and a short stint as COO during the launch of Kiosite, a startup HR software company, Rabbi “Mike” was approached, in 2002, by local lay leaders to help out “for a few months” with the local NCSY chapter until they found a permanent replacement for their NCSY Advisor. He agreed and more than a decade later he is still going strong. In 2003, he started JSU of St. Louis with a pilot club of 16 students at Ladue High School. The club sponsor was the grandson of Nazis. A combination of his passion for Judaism, unconditional regard for all Jews regardless of affiliation and a great deal of help from Hashem has enabled him to catapult JSU in St. Louis to a dynamic organization of 16 clubs, in 14 high schools, and the Galia and Milton Movitz~Senator John Danforth Israel Scholars Program serving 800+ students. He has a B.A. in Education from Adelphi University, MBA from Johns Hopkins, Rabbinic Ordinations from Ner Israel Rabbinical College and Kol Yaakov Torah Center, and a Masters in Education and is a provisionally licensed therapist in mental health.
