Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz

Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz was the spiritual leader of Congregation Congrégation Tifereth Beth David Jérusalem (TBDJ), a synagogue in Montreal (1996 to 2016). In January 2016, Rabbi Steinmetz left Montreal to assume the pulpit of a prominent New York synagogue, Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun (KJ), on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

I often volunteered to film short five-minute sermons during his time in Montreal. I also share nine of Rabbi Steinmetz’s addresses on the Kehilat Jeshurun (KJ) website. I found each one exceptional.
