Welcome Rabbi Farhi
With joy and gratitude for our many blessings, we are delighted to announce that Rabbi Shlomo Farhi will become the Rabbi of Congregation Beit Edmond, beginning in mid-August. The Executive Committee and Rabbinic Search Committee members express their appreciation to the entire Congregation for its patience, support, and valuable input throughout the rigorous search process.
Rabbi Farhi is a world-renowned speaker and educator, known for his magnetism and personable style. He was born in Israel and raised in the Syrian community of Deal, New Jersey, in a home saturated in Torah, Chesed and tradition. He studied in top yeshivot including Rav Tzvi Kaplan, Mir, and Lakewood, and he obtained his rabbinical ordination from the Jerusalem Kollel of Rav Yitzchak Berkowitz.
Rabbi Farhi built cutting-edge educational programs such as NEXT, JTAG, and Aish Schools, which are currently educating thousands of young Jews in the United Kingdom, and helping them find direction in their lives. He is the Founder and Director of Chazak, a Sephardic educational organization, and was the Director of Jewish Leadership Foundation, whose mandate is to identify and nurture future leaders for Jewish communities worldwide.
We invite the Congregation to join us in welcoming Rabbi Farhi, his wife Chana, and their children Charna, Shoshana, Rachel, Sarah, Yitzchak, and Rivka.
