Rabbi Zagelbaum

Rabbi Shalom Zagelbaum joined our rabbinic staff in July, 2018 as the Director of Education and assumed the role of Assistant Rabbi in 2020.  He previously completed extensive training in the Jerusalem Kollel and served as our 2017 High Holiday intern.


Rabbi Shalom Zagelbaum was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. After attending Yeshiva Torah Vodaath and Mesivta High School of Boston, the rabbi studied in Yeshivas Mir in Yerushalayim under the tutelage of Rav Asher Arieli.  While in Israel, he received his semicha/rabbinic ordination from Rav Yitzchok Berkovits and tested with distinction in many areas of Jewish law.  He successfully completed the Ner Le’Elef Community Development Training Program, and the Va’ad Chizuk Educational Leadership Training Program. During the rabbi's five years in Israel, he was involved in teaching and education at many institutions, including Yeshivos Tiferes Yisroel, Shaarei Tevuna, and Nesivos Ahron, in addition to running programs at Machon Yaakov and Machon Shlomo, and lecturing for STEP Israel trips run by Meor. He was also the founder and teacher of the daily Navi Shiur at The Jerusalem Kollel.


Together with his wife Penina, they are full of gratitude to Hashem for giving them three beautiful children, Meir Simcha, Libby and Dassy. Penina serves as a teacher at Torah Day School, with thanks for the school's continued partnership.
