Rabbi Stern

Rabbi Yehuda Stern assumed the position of Associate Rabbi of our Shul in July 2007. He is the Rabbi of our Shtibl Minyan where he already has an enthusiastic following. In addition to leading the Shtibl, Rabbi Stern assists Rabbi Goldman in providing Rabbinic services to the wider congregation.

Rabbi Stern, together with his wife Estee, has also taken-on the challenge of developing activities for Young Adults at Sydenham Shul. Upon their arrival to the Shul, they established, together with a committee of Young Adults, a group called The Friday Night Club whose motive is to offer a venue and forum for Young Adults to meet and socialise in a relaxed non-contrived environment. This couple is dynamic and exciting and have already managed to add to the energy level at Sydenham.

Rabbi Stern was born in Melbourne and matriculated in Israel after his family made Aliyah. He furthered his Torah studies in leading Yeshivot in New York, London and Russia and later obtained his Smicha (Rabbinical Ordination) from the Central Lubavitch Yeshivah of America. After marrying in December 2004, Rabbi and Estee spent the next two years teaching and lecturing in the Jewish community in Melbourne. Rabbi Stern enjoys teaching and is an excellent communicator.

Rabbi and Estee are the proud parents of three children - Batya, Tzviky and Chana.
