Rabbinic Board

Jewish law and ethics are enormously relevant to medical decisions. We are especially fortunate to have a  committed panel of senior rabbinical figures constantly on call. Their vast knowledge is an indispensable resource.

Rabbi Yosef Y. Shusterman received Smicha (Yore Yore) and Dayanus (Yodin Yodin) from Lubavitcher Yeshiva in New York. He is the Director of Chabad of North Beverly Hills as well as the Rav of the Chabad community in Los Angeles.

Rabbi Yehoram Ulman serves as a Rosh Beis Din (Senior Dayan) on the Sydney Beis Din and is the immediate Past President of the Rabbinical Council of NSW. He received Smicha for Rabbonus and Dayonus from world renowned authorities, including Rabbi Pinchos Hirschprung and Rabbi Zalman Nehemia Goldberg shlit’a.
