Rabbi Dovid Tugendhaft שליט"א together with his Rebbetzen Shoshana and their children have been part of Nishmas Yisroel from its inception and instrumental in its design and direction.
Having learnt under Rav Nosson Tzvi Finkel זצ”ל at Yeshivas Mir and being one of just two people to have received Semicha from the Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Tugendhaft is over-qualified as our community leader and is treasured as a rare gem.
In 1999, he founded the Ohr Yisroel Congregation in Elstree, where he served as Rabbi for six years.
‘Reb Dovid’ is also deeply involved in the wider community, working tirelessly for Seed UK and the Hasmonean Beis Programme.
His gentle, warm, fresh and genuine approach, coupled with his clear and deep knowledge of Torah and Halochoh makes him the ideal leader of our Kehilla.
