Rabbi Andrew Saffer went to Scopus and Monash, anticipating a career in Internet Law at the same commercial law firm as his many cousins. A six-week Jerusalem Fellowship summer trip to Israel changed that. Six weeks at Aish Jerusalem turned into six years, and (while moonlighting as a graphic designer and events photographer — he shot Margaret Thatcher!), Andrew became a rabbi. He met his wife, Rachelle (also from Melbourne) in Jerusalem the very next day. They married, moved back to Australia, and now share five spectacular children. Andrew spends his spare time listening to the same music your parents did and making Dad jokes. Rabbi Jon Neumann grew up in Melbourne, went to school and university for a bit before deciding that working in Consulting and IT was more fun. After maxing out his corporate life, John moved to Israel, and spent seven years learning at Aish Jerusalem and working to expand Aish's international outreach efforts. In 2006, Jon move back to Melbourne to join Aish Australia and help teach and share the wisdom of Torah with the local community. Jon has four amazing children who specialise in coming up with new schemes to ensure their parents don't have too much free time on their hands.
