It is very exciting to look back  see how much we and our fellow CTC congregants have grown in Yiddishkeit and learning over the years. The extent of this growth would have not been possible without the hard work and dedication of Rabbi and Susan Rich. With the help of Hashem, we look forward to even more growth in the years to come with the support and encouragement of the Rabbi, Susan and the rest of the CTC community!

Before coming to Philadelphia, Rav Riber acquired thirteen years of teaching experience at Yeshivas Aish HaTorah Yerushalayim – ten years of which was spent as a senior Maggid Shiur and Mashgiach. Throughout his tenure, he helped hundreds of bochurim chart their course as true B’nei Torah, as well as served as a spiritual guide for married couples at all stages of life.  He is also known to have forged close relationships with countless students extending far beyond their official enrollment at the yeshiva.

Rav Meir Riber began his journey in Denver, Colorado, where he was born and raised. While in Denver, he learned in Yeshivas Toras Chaim of Denver. He then went on to learn in Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim, under the tutelage of Rav Asher Arieli.  After his formative stretch at the Mir, he moved back to America to learn in Lakewood, where he met his wife, Rebbetzin Penina Riber (nee, Brody). Rebbetzin Riber is originally from Silver Spring, Maryland, and is a
granddaughter of Rav Shlomo Zalman Braun zt”l – Rav of K’hal Shaarei Tziyon in Flatbush, and author of ‘Shearim Metzuyanim B’Halacha’, a commentary on Shulchan Aruch and Shas.

After learning in Kollel in Lakewood, Rav Riber and his wife moved to Eretz Yisroel where he returned to Yeshivas Mir Yerushalyim. While in the Mir he learned under Rav Asher Arieli, continued on to multiple Chaburas, and ultimately earned rabbinic ordination in Issur V’Heter from Rav Zalman Nechemia Goldberg. This was the springboard which led him to Aish HaTorah, and ultimately to Northeast Philadelphia.
