Rabbi Gavriel Rubin spent his childhood in Stony Brook, NY and his formative years in Stillwater, OK. He received a degree in Anthropology from Stanford University in 1981 and spent time in the community of Rabbi Chaim Lapin in San Jose, CA.
Upon graduating he moved to Jerusalem, Israel, where he studied under Rabbi Aharon Feldman, Rabbi Yisrael Zev Gustman and Rabbi Tzvi Kushelevsky. He then taught and tutored at various yeshivos for the next 20 years.
After that he embarked in earnest upon his career as a translator/style editor, at one point translating material for Aish HaTorah’s Discovery seminar. Today he delivers a daily daf yomi class on Zoom, while at the same time working on his own books. He is a resident of the Neve Yaakov neighborhood of Jerusalem.
