Rabbi Shmuel A. Metzger has been serving the Manhattan community since 2006. A born and bred New Yorker, he received Rabbinic ordination and completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Jewish Studies at the Rabbinical College of America in Morristown, New Jersey. Following that, he spent six years of study at the central Lubavitch Yeshiva in Brooklyn, eventually becoming qualified as a Rabbinic Judge (Dayan).Rabbi Metzger’s studies and travels as a student Rabbi have taken him across the world and close to home, with stints in London, Connecticut and Bosnia, among other places.
Rabbi Metzger combines his vast knowledge of Torah, Talmud and Chassidic thought with an open approach to everyone he encounters. The Rabbi is well-known in the East Midtown community for his warm smile and concern for all, as well as the depth and originality of his classes and lectures. Having grown up in the surroundings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi M.M. Schneersohn, Rabbi Metzger is inspired by the Rebbe’s love of Judaism, of all Jews and of humanity, and has spearheaded many projects and activities in our area to raise awareness of Judaism and unite the community.
