Rabbi Ari Kostelitz was raised in Sydney, Australia where he attended Yeshiva College before moving to Bnai Brak to attend High School at the Chasam Sofer Yeshiva. In 1992, he came to Lakewood, New Jersey to attend Beis Medresh Gevohah, the hallowed Lakewood Yeshiva; during which time he met his wife, Toby. Together they moved back to Israel in 1994. Rabbi Kostilitz was given Smicha by Rabbi Moshe Heinemann, shlit”a, of Baltimore and the Beis Din of Jerusalem.
He continued his studies in Mir Yeshiva and honed his skills by teaching adult learners at Yeshivat Ohr Somayach.
In 2005, Rabbi Kostelitz moved to Oak Park to assist his wife’s esteemed grandfather, Rav Chazkel Grubner z’l. He assumed the role of spiritual leader of Congregation Dovid Ben Nuchim – Aish Kodesh after Rav Grubner’s passing.
Rabbi Kostelitz has dedicated immeasurable amounts of time and energy to the Detroit Jewish Community and is regularly called upon my rabbonim, community leaders and baal habatim to aid those in need of charity, counsel and inspiration.
We offer a wife range of programs and Shuirium for people of all levels.
