Rabbi Shlomo Seidenfeld has been active in Jewish Outreach for over 27 years. He began his career on the college campus, first as the Program Director of the Brooklyn College Hillel and then as the creator and first director of JAM @ U.C.L.A.
Over the last 17 years, Rabbi Seidenfeld has become one of Los Angeles’ most captivating and sought after speakers. With compelling topics and a passionate teaching style, Rabbi Seidenfeld’s classes attract Jews of all ages and stages both in Los Angeles and beyond.
Most recently, Rabbi Seidenfeld returned from a trip to Hungary with his father and a Yad Vashem film crew who chronicled his life prior to the concentration camp. Inspired by that experience, Rabbi Seidenfeld created a powerful lecture on faith, titled, “How G-d Survived Auschwitz”.
Rabbi Seidenfeld also serves as the Scholar In-Residence for Aish Hatorah’s JMI program in Los Angeles where he was recently honored with their 2016 Leadership Award.
Rabbi Seidenfeld received his Rabbinic ordination from Shappels in Jerusalem (1994). He and his wife Lolly have three daughters. This will be RabbiSeidenfeld’s third year at Pesach on the Mountain.
