Please Join Us ON sHABBAT vAYERA NOVEMBER 16 AS WE WELCOME RAV YEHUDA GILAD TO OUR bAYIT

Rav Yehuda Gilad is Rosh Yeshiva at Yeshivat Ma'ale Gilboa and the Rabbi of Kibbutz Lavi. He was born 1955 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and made Aliyah when he was 7. Learned in Yeshivat Merkaz Harav, and especially under Rav Yehuda Amital Zatz”l in Yeshivat Har Etzion, where he got smicha at the age of 25.

Rav Gilad served as a member of the 15th Knesset on behalf of the Meimad party.

Rav Gilad deals intensively with questions regarding Torah and morality, and a large portion of his classes deal with these issues, in Tanakh, halacha and modern Jewish thought. His book, "I Heard Your Voice: G-d and Human Discourse in the Book of Genesis" (Hebrew, 2013), is a result of his teachings on these issues over the years. 

Rav Gilad is one of the strongest voices of the moderate religious Zionism in Israel today. He is in the leadership of the Beit Hillel rabbinic organization, and a member of the Tzohar rabbinic council. He is in one of the founders of Giyur KaHalacha, a non-governmental conversion court network that implements a solution for the Giyur crisis in Israel.
