Rabbi Jevin received rabbinic ordination from Hebrew College Rabbinic School in June 2019.

He was one of the executives responsible for Staples' "Easy Brand" Strategy and the famous "Easy Button." Eagle says his career change from business to the Rabbinate was the fulfillment of a life-long dream to immerse himself in Torah study and serve the Jewish people

Rabbi Jevin has an MBA from Harvard Business School, where he served as an executive committee member on the Jewish Students Association, and a bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College, where he majored in religion and government and served as Hillel student president.
