Growing up in Teaneck, NJ, Rabbi Senter was raised by his esteemed parents, Rabbi Dr. Zechariah Senter, a professor of mathematics and the CEO of Chof–K, and Mrs. Chana Senter. After graduating Yeshiva of Hudson County, Rabbi Senter went on to Yeshivas Rabbi Samson Refael Hirsch for high school. He then continued on to study in Yeshiva Shaarei Torah of Monsey, NY, under Rabbi Berel Wein, and then by Rabbi Meir Stern of Passaic, NJ for three years. Rabbi Senter then married the daughter of Rabbi Dr. Nachum Schorr, head of the psychology department at Montgomery College of Maryland, and Mrs. Zipora Schorr, headmistress of Beth Tfiloh school of Baltimore. After their marriage, the Senters moved to Israel, where Rabbi Senter studied b’chavrusa with one of the Roshei Yeshiva of the Mir, Rabbi Elya Boruch Finkel, z”l; and the Rosh Yeshiva of the Chevron Yeshiva, Rabbi David Cohen.
After learning in the Mir yeshiva for 5 years, Rabbi Senter started delivering a shiur in the Mir to many devoted talmidim. After 5 years of delivering shiurim at the Mir, he opened his own yeshiva in the summer of 2006 with just 20 boys. Today the enrollment stands at 110 students, 90 married kollel students, and over 20 Rebbeim.
Rabbi Senter was influenced by his grandfather, Rabbi Aaron Dov Rosenbaum, an activist and the driving force behind the Rosenbaum yeshiva of North Jersey. He was also greatly influenced by the teachings of Rabbi Shlomo Freifeld and Rav Klonimus Kalman Shapiro, brilliant educators of the years past. He lives in the Arzei Habira neighborhood of Jerusalem with his wife and children.
