Why Didn’t Rabbi Daniel Korobkin Make The Cut At Beth Jacob?

Because he did not apply.

Rabbi Korobkin was the runner-up to Steven Weil in the 2000 search for a successor to Abner Weiss. He did not throw his hat in the ring this go round.

By temperament, Rabbi Korobkin is more of a scholar than a pulpit rabbi. I believe he’s pursuing a PhD in Islam at UCLA.

Los Angeles is blessed with many great Modern Orthodox rabbis such as Korobkin (Elazar Muskin, Yosef Kanefsky — two pulpit stars of Pico-Robertson).
