Our Rabbi

Meet Rabbi Sholom Skolnik, Kesser Israel's new Rabbi!

 

Rabbi Skolnik began his new role at Kesser Israel on September 1.  He is well known to our community as a superb teacher and Torah scholar, having come to Portland in 2017 from the Phoenix Kollel to serve on the teaching staff at Maayan Torah Day School. He has worked as Director of Adult Education at the Portland Kollel, as the Rabbi at Congregation Ahavat Achim, and recently completed his Masters Degree in Teacher Leadership through Brandeis University. Our new Rebbetzin, Mrs. Chaviva Skolnik, has also taught at Maayan, in addition to serving on the Kesser Israel Board of Directors for several years. She completed a Masters Degree in Social Work through Yeshiva University.  Over the past five years we have all come to admire and value the Skolniks, not only as knowledgeable and skilled professionals but also as kind and reliable friends. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful couple serving as the leaders of our shul.
