Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz

 

Posted: Wednesday, October 2, 2013 10:00 am

Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz had no intention of moving to the Valley when he was first contacted by Rabbi Darren Kleinberg to take the reins of Valley Beit Midrash. Kleinberg, founding director of the pluralistic adult Jewish learning program, was leaving to take a new job in California and apparently was quite persuasive because Yanklowitz accepted the directorship.

“He kept telling me about the organization and persuading me that it was a good move,” he says. “I looked more closely at it and I realized that this was a very unique model that I hadn’t seen anywhere else.” He sounds eager to launch VBM’s new program year, which begins Wednesday, Oct. 9, at Temple Chai with the Second Annual Seymour Sacks z”l Memorial Lecture (see box below).
