Rabbi Rose was born in Queens, New York in 1944. He attended Queens College and Yeshiva University. While in YU, he worked odd jobs to support himself. He met his wife Sandra in 1972 at a Young Israel convention where he was speaking, and she wanted to learn more about Judaism.
The couple got married and had one son and one daughter. They moved to Florida and Marvin became the Rabbi in Beth David. Afterwards, he moved on to North Bay Village and served as the Rabbi there for 10 years. At the same time, he was a chaplain for the Jewish Federation. Later, he was asked to be the Rabbi in Tiferes Jacob and stayed there for thirty years until he needed to retire due to an accident. Marvin fell and hit his head and hasn’t been able to walk since. The couple moved into the ALF only a few weeks ago. We met the day they moved in. They both love coming to TOP classes and enjoy the advice about where to get Kosher food in the area and where they can find the closest Minyan. Both Marvin and Sandy have becomes big fans of the TOP classes and personal friends.
