- Yediot Acharonot, Israel's leading newspaper
RABBI ZINGER WILL BE VISITING CBT THIS WEEK for Purim & Shabbat. He will be addressing our community on Shabbat day, as well, as on Purim. Stay tuned for more details!
Rabbi Dov Zinger is especially remembered for his moving opening of the funeral of the three boys, Naftali, Gilad, and Eyal, who were abducted and murdered in Israel in the summer of 2014.
At the young age of 27, Rabbi Zinger was appointed "Rosh Yeshiva" the head of school of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz's Mekor Chaim High School Yeshiva. His unique educational approach involves trusting and empowering the student and developing his inner spiritual consciousness in a way that opens him to the outside world (rather than isolating himself as is often the case).
The success of this approach led to the establishment of the "Beit Midrash L'Hitchadshut"- a nation-wide, Neo-Chassidic Outreach study & prayer program which appeals to Israelis from all levels of personal observance. In addition he established "Lifnei V'Lifnim" - a creative, alternate educators' training program, which emphasizes awareness development, listening skills, new ways to revive and internalize Torah study, the development of emotional intelligence of the heart and mind, as well as refining sensitivity and creativity.
Rabbi Zinger lives in Tekoa with his wife and has 10 children. He is widely considered an expert in the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov and one of the leaders of the Neo-Chassidic Movement in Israel.
In addition to his many accolades, Rabbi Dov Zinger was also Rabbi Allouche's teacher and head of school at Rabbi Steinsaltz's Mekor Chaim High-School Yeshiva in Jerusalem, during his teen years. Rabbi Allouche counts Rabbi Zinger as one of the handful few who have most influenced his life.
