OHEL Welcomes Rabbi Jeremy Donath to its Bergen County Team
OHEL Childrenâ€™s Home and Family Services is proud to welcome Rabbi Jeremy Donath to their family, as OHELâ€™s first Bergen County Community Coordinator.
Rabbi Donath lives in Fair Lawn with his wife Shira, and is the Rav of Congregation Darchei Noam. He is a member of the RCBC and he is a teacher and Rabbi at TABC in Teaneck.
A native of Minneapolis and a graduate of YU, he will connect OHEL with all the local schools and shuls of the â€śEight Townsâ€ť of Bergen County- Teaneck, Bergenfield, Englewood, Fair Lawn, Paramus, Tenafly, New Milford and Fort Lee. He will seek to introduce OHELâ€™s services to the community, and will identify needs that the community may have that OHEL can address. In addition, Rabbi Donath is an accomplished speaker and teacher, and has drawn rave reviews in the short eighteen months he has been living in Bergen County.
Having served in previous years as Assistant Rabbi to both Rabbi Shalom Baum of Teaneck (current President of the RCBC) and to Rabbi Shmuel Goldin in Englewood (recently retired President of the RCA), he is well suited to handle the many needs and challenges of OHELâ€™s individuals and families, as well as the community at large.
Robert Katz, OHELâ€™s Chief Development Officer, said about Rabbi Donath, â€śI have personally known Rabbi Donath for several years, and have watched him become a true community leader with great empathy for the needs of those in distress. We are thrilled to have him as a colleague at OHELâ€ť.
Simcha Feuerman, OHELâ€™s Lifetime Care Foundation Director, said â€śRabbi Donath has a keen interest and insight into the social concerns that affect the families and children in this community, and he is a superb partner in expanding on OHELâ€™s important workâ€ť.
