Her father was the Rabbi of Beth Midrash Mishkan Israel and both he and her mother are extremely dedicated to their community. Ruthy graduated from Brooklyn College and is a licensed CPA.
Aaron was raised in Canarsie, Brooklyn. His father, a Rabbi, and his mother, a pre-school teacher, were pillars of their community and recently moved to Flatbush. Both Aaron’s mother’s and father’s parents were Holocaust survivors. Tales of barely surviving the labor camps, Bergen Belsen, displaced persons camps and the weight of passing on their rich heritage is what Aaron and his 4 siblings were raised on.
