Rabbi Shlomo Katz
Rabbi Shlomo KatzRav of Kehilat Shirat David
MZH will be led by Rav Shlomo Katz, the Rav of Kehilat Shirat David. Rav Shlomo’s leadership blends his deep knowledge of Torah with a thirst for a lived experience of closeness to Hashem. His spiritual authenticity is infectious and the passion he exhibits for Torah, the Jewish people and Eretz Yisrael reverberates throughout his kehillah. With hundreds of students, and thousands of recorded shiurim, published books and many moving recorded albums, he is uniquely suited to guide young rabbis to lives of communal impact in Eretz Yisrael. Rav Shlomo will oversee all aspects of MZH and will be directly leading the afternoon study and workshops in Penimiyus Hatorah and rabbinical training.
