Our Rabbis

Rabbi Zakon Rabbi Nasanya Zakon, Director
Charming, charismatic, and extremely popular, Rabbi Zakon delivers many weekly classes including Character Development. He is also a frequent guest lecturer for community organizations. A native of New York who received his ordination from Beth Medrash Govoha Rabbinical Seminary in 1998, Rabbi Zakon enjoys walking, good books, and good conversation. He and his wife Devorah, who received her M.A. in speech pathology from Brooklyn College in 1996, joined the ranks of DATA in August 2000. They have four children, Miriam, Yaakov, Shifra and Nechuma.
Rabbi Robkin Rabbi Yogi Robkin, Director
Rabbi Yogi is the youthful, spiritual, and dynamic co-rabbi of DATA of Plano. Rabbi Yogi is known for his openness in tackling and discussing difficult and sometimes misunderstood or taboo subjects in his well attended Torah classes. Together with his incredible wife Shifra, Rabbi Yogi welcomes countless guests to his home for weekly Shabbos meals, and before people know it they have become part of the Robkin extended family (while you are at the Robkin home make sure to take in all of Rabbi Yogi’s famous Shabbos songs, and wicked table drumming).Coming from a less Torah observant background, Rabbi Yogi has a special understanding and unique connection to individuals just beginning their spiritual journeys, and for this reason students find themselves naturally attracted to him and to his teachings.

Rabbi Yogi studied in Ner Israel Rabbinical College in Baltimore, and received his Masters degree in Education and Administration from Loyola University in Chicago. Rabbi Yogi is married to his wife Shifra, and together they have five children – Shira, Dina Sara, Rachel Naomi,  Shimon and Hillel Yaakov.
