The Disco Rabbi – Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman

As told by Rabbi Joey Haber on Torah Anytime Daily Dose.

“The Torah tells us that if you save one life, it is like you save the whole world? After the six day war in 1967, I said to myself, what can I do to thank G-d for the miracles. I will leave Jerusalem and go to a place that is very dark – Migdal HaEmek. This city at this time was the worst city filled with crime, drugs. I decided that I will build a home for these kids. Because when you speak to them face to face in jails, in the discos, I found that these kids are good guys.” Rabbi Dovid Grossman

Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman also known as the “Disco Rabbi ” is the Chief Rabbi of Migdal HaEmek, founder and dean of Migdal Ohr educational institutions, and a member of the Chief Rabbinate Council of Israel. He is known for his work with children from disadvantaged and troubled homes, having rehabilitated tens of thousands of youth through his educational network.

Rabbi Nachman Seltzer has written a book about Rabbi Grossman titled Living Legend: Rabbi Grossman of Migdal Haemek.
