R' Dovid Grossman
Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman (יצחק דוד גרוסמן) is among other things, founder and dean of Migdal Ohr, a member of the Chief Rabbinate Council of Israel, the Chief Rabbi of the city Migdal HaEmek and an Israel Prize recipient. You don’t need to dig too deep to understand why this man has managed to unite Jews from literally all walks of life into his warm embrace.
As a newlywed 21 year old Orthodox Jew, he had a truly uncanny ability to connect with people, including thugs, street kids and dangerous criminals behind bars. Today decades later, he is a beloved icon and legend among Israelis and worldwide. With a simple message of closeness and love, he draws thousands of people to him. In a sense he symbolizes the unity of Am Yisrael (or Klal Israel).
