Rabbi Chaim Rapoport, a renowned Torah scholar, lecturer and author is joining the faculty of Yeshiva Gedolah Lubavitch in London, England.
Rabbi Rapoport will assume his new position as Maggid Shiur in nigleh for the newly expanded Shiur Gimmel, starting October 2014, zman of the 5775 school year.
The veteran Yeshiva, which provides quality chinuch for local and overseas bochurim for over 30 years, is headed by Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Yitzchok Meir Hertz.
An expert in applied halachah and bioethics, Rabbi Rapoport attended the Yeshivos of Manchester, Gateshead, Torat Emet in Jerusalem and the central Tomchei Tmimim Lubavitch Yeshivah in New York.
He served as the head of the Lubavitch Kollel in Leeds, Head of the Birmingham Rabbinic Board, Rabbi of the Ilford Synagogue and Advisor to Britain’s Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks on Jewish Medical Ethics.
The Yeshiva plans to make Rabbi Rapoport’s sharp mind and vast knowledge available to all students, not only of Shiur Gimmel, COLlive.com was told.
Rabbi Rapoport will be giving a series of in-depth and stimulating shiurim throughout the year on matters of contemporary halacha and the Rebbe’s Torah that are particularly relevant to bochurim and yungerleit nowadays.
“Life without discipline may be more pleasurable but with halachic discipline it is more meaningful,” he said in the past. “It restrains us from falling prey to many tempting vices and keeps us focused on the noble, altruistic and the sublime.”
These unique shiurim, similar to the ones he’s been giving to many communities around the world, will be for the entire Zal. You can expect Golders Green residents to listen in as well.
