Hailing from Long Island, NY, Rabbi Elkin received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University, and was ordained from the Hebrew Union College in New York in 1990.
He served as a rabbi and teacher in Montreal for several years, and as Hillel Director in Chapel Hill, NC, before moving to Toronto.
His special interests in the rabbinate include Bible commentaries, and the relationship between religion and state in the contemporary world.
Rabbi Elkin is married to Linda Lipsky, a Montrealer who teaches literature at York University.
