He is married to Canadian actress Jessica Parker Kennedy.

On their Jewish wedding ceremony, Jessica has stated:

I was raised with religious beliefs and Ronen, who was born in Israel, wasn’t but his Jewish DNA is much higher than mine so culturally it was super important to us. Our rabbi was also my rabbi when I was a teenager. I always said: ‘One day when I get married, I hope Rabbi Howard will be my rabbi.’ He lives in America now so I called him and asked him.
