Full Bio

Rabbi Shimshon HaKohen Nadel lives and teaches in Jerusalem, where he serves as rabbi of Kehilat Zichron Yosef.

His articles on Jewish Law & History have appeared in Tehumin, Hakirah, The Journal of Halacha & Contemporary Society, Segula, Kol ha-Torah, Kolmus, the Jerusalem Post, and the Jewish Press. He is also the author of “Medina & Halacha – Exploring the Jewish State through the lens of Jewish Law,” a popular weekly column looking at contemporary issues in Israel. A regular guest on Kol Yisrael, Rabbi Nadel offers up inspiration for the Israeli FM radio listening audience.

Before moving to Israel in 2009, Rabbi Nadel served as a rabbi in Nebraska and Connecticut. He studied at Yeshiva University’s Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary under his rebbe and mentor, HaRav Moshe Dovid Tendler.

A sought after lecturer, Rabbi Nadel has served as scholar in residence for communities all over the world. Culling from sources throughout our rich literature, his classes display his depth of thought and breadth of scholarship, and are always full of wit, wisdom, and inspiration.

An accomplished musician, Rabbi Nadel has toured internationally as a solo act and along with his band. His highly acclaimed CD, Achas Shoalti – One Thing I Ask, a high-energy hybrid of rock, pop, folk, and blues, has been called by critics, “passionate rock n’ roll for the soul.”
