Meet Rabbi Shlomo Nachman ben Ya'akov

HaRav of

Associate Rabbi of The House of Seven Beggars

It is my sincere prayer that my humble efforts will help unite our people. As my dear brother Shlomo Silverman recently noted to me, "We Jews are not so good at multiplication, but we are masters of division!"

Likewise the former Jerusalem Chief Rabbi Rav Kook declared: "Since there are enough people practicing rejection, I choose to practice acceptence."

And as the Chofetz Chaim warned:

ENOUGH! We claim we want HaMashiach and the Third Temple and yet we continue doing the same things for which it was destroyed! "A Jew is a Jew!" I hold this wisdom close by the mercy of HaShem! Some Jews are religious, others are not. Some Jews are fanatics on both ends of the spectrum, most are not. Let us seek a radical love-based balance! Especially towards one another.

Personally, I am a traditional (hence "Orthodox") Jew and Rabbi. This is enough for me. Of course there are always more details and people ask, so...

My Rabbinical lineage is as follows: Here is a partial list of Rabbinic blessings I have received.

Our Shul: The House of Seven Beggars

Our Yeshiva: Website coming soon

I have studied the religions of the world in great depth. I hold an MA in World Religious Studies from John F. Kennedy University and various other achievements for my studies., my Facebook walls and groups, and my You Tube channel are my primary online presences.

         Please Note: is completely independent of the various groups I associate with. The views expressed here are my own understandings and do not necessarily reflect those of anyone else. Likewise, the views of the various groups I associate with do not always express mine. Please refrain from making assumptions about my beliefs and practices until you get to know me. If you have questions, ask me. In many ways I'm not your average Chassid. Heck, I'm not even your average Jew! But then... few Jews are when you get to know them!

I am a committed Religious Zionist.

          Without supporting the Nation and People of Israel one can not honestly claim to be loyal to our Holy Scriptures, Traditions, or Religion in my opinion. Far too many Jews today, even some rabbis (both Orthodox and non-Orthodox), are turning against Israel and thereby betraying the Hope of the Redemption. The Hope of Zion is the bedrock of Judaism and our people. Judaism and Zionism can not be separated. They are one.

Of course, I'm not naive. The secular government of Israel today is far from perfect. The Israel that now exists is not the Israel that will be during the reign of HaMashiach ben David (may those days come soon and within our lifetimes). There are many things I wish were different there HOWEVER I stand firmly and immovably with Israel, even as I beg HaShem to transform the Nation of the Jews into a truly Jewish Nation (to paraphrase Moshe Feiglin) as described by our holy prophets and teachers.
