Meet Rabbi Esteban Gottfried

As co-founder and director of Beit Tefilah Israeli, Rabbi Gottfried leads a fast-growing community that is renewing and revitalizing the landscape of Judaism in Israel. Each week, hundreds come together through prayer and song for Gottfried’s transformational Kabbalat Shabbat gatherings in Tel Aviv. This alternative outlet for spiritual expression has attracted secular Israelis who are excited by the modern, creative and cultural approach to prayer, and has become an international phenomenon.

Federation’s Imagine Israel Changemakers Series brings dynamic Israeli agents of change to DC to lead community conversations focused on their impact on transformative social issues in Israel.
