HoffersAaron Hoffer ('97-'98)

After spending his Shana Alef at Reishit in 1997'-98', Aaron Hoffer, originally from Springfield, New Jersey, has been keeping busy!   As an undergraduate student at NYU, Aaron took on a double major, studying Respiratory Therapy and Health Management.  Aaron's involvement in NYU's Jewish campus life helped build and strengthen the learning and standards of the university's Orthodox community.   After graduating in 2001, Aaron joined his family owned medical equipment company.  Today, as Vice President, Aaron helps manage and direct the Bayonne, NJ based company, and spends time developing and expanding new business projects.

Aaron and his wife Jennifer (nee'  Cohn of Jamaica Estates) were married in 2004, and are the proud parents of   Dalia, 16 months.  Jen is the Events Director at Aish HaTorah /Discovery in New York City.  The Hoffer's recently moved into a home in Teaneck, NJ and are busy settling in. Aaron maintains a close connection with his Rabbeim and the Yeshiva, and is active in local alumni planning. We look forward to sharing good news and continued Nachas from the Hoffer's!
