Rabbi Mordechai Machlis on Parashat Metzora


  1. Excuse my ignorance, but who is that Rabbi Machlis, and is he Orthodox?

  2. B"H

    In Jerusalem this would be a funny question, as many many people know Rabbi Mordechai Machlis.:-)

    He was born in Brooklyn, went to Yeshiva Torah ve'Da'at. His father was a Rabbi. Rabbi Mordechai Machlis has been living in Jerusalem (Ma'alot Dafnat) for more than 25 years and organizes Shabbatot every Shabbat. About 80 people sit in his livingroom.

    He teaches foreign students ar Bar Ilan University, he is national religious but most of his 14 kids have turned into Haredim. His sister Shifrah lives with her Chabad husband in Flatbush.

    The two oldest Machlis study at MIR in Jerusalem.
