Rabbi Dr. Norbert Weinberg

Join Date:

Norbert Weinberg- Rabbi and educator- is using this blog to create a narrative of the Jewish experience of the last century, as seen through his family's records and archival documents. His father, Rabbi Dr. William Weinberg, earned his Rabbinical ordination in Berlin, was imprisoned by the Nazis, escaped to the Soviet Union, and returned to Austria and then Frankfurt as the first Chief Rabbi of t...he German State of Hesse( Frankfurt region). His mother, Irene Weinberg, survived Nazi persecution while passing for an Aryan in Lwow and Warsaw. Their account forms the core of this research. Norbert and his wife, Ofra,currently operate a private education center which provides remedial and enrichment tutoring. He has served as Rabbi to Hollywood Temple Beth El in Los Angeles, Beth Shalom of Whittier, California, and Rodef Sholom of Newport-News , Virginia. He also directed the Central Institute for Jewish Studies at Bet Berl under the auspices of Israel’s Federation of Labor. He was ordained as Rabbi and received his MA and doctorate honoris causa from the Jewish Theological Seminary, and his BA from New York University.
