It is a challenging undertaking to encapsulate the commitment and sacrifice of Rabbi Aryeh and Rebbetzin Sokoloff. For 26 years, they have given of themselves in every conceivable way. They have provided spiritual and religious guidance to the entire Queens community. The Rabbi’s halachic leadership is sought throughout the local neighborhood and throughout Queens, both as head of the Vaad Harabonim of Queens (VHQ) and as a superior talmid chacham. He and the Rebbetzin have personally been involved in the journey back to Torah for literally hundreds of people. Rabbi Sokoloff’s devotion to the students of Shevach High School is legendary, as he insists on infusing not only their minds, but their hearts, with the deep awareness that they are Hashem’s children and worthy of respect and individual accomplishment.
