Rabbi Boruch Lesches

Rabbi Boruch Lesches
Rabbi Boruch Dov Lesches was born in Tel Aviv where he received his Yeshiva education.

Following his studies at Yeshivas Kol Torah, under the leadership of the illustrious Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Aurbach Z"TL, Rabbi Lesches studied at the main Lubavitch Yeshiva "770" where he was awarded Smicha and advanced Smicha of Dayanus from the Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Yisroel Piekarski.

Following his marriage to Shterna, daughter of Rabbi Mendel Morozov, Menahel of Yeshivas Oholei Menachem, Rabbi and Rebbetzin Lesches moved to Sydney, Australia, where Rabbi Lesches directed the Sydney Beis Din and established the country's first Shechita and Kashrus system.

When the Yeshiva Gedolah of Sydney was established in 1986 Rabbi Lesches served as its Rosh Yeshiva and continued to serve in that capacity for the next 20 years. In addition, Rabbi Lesches served as the Rabbi of the Australian capital for 25 years.

Prior to Rosh Hashana of 2006 Rabbi and Rebbetzin Lesches moved to Monsey, New York to assume the position of Rabbi of K'hal Tzemach Tzedek Lubavitch of Monsey, a number of years following the untimely passing of the Shul's founding Rabbi, Rabbi Dovid Wichnin A"H.

Under the dynamic leadership of Rabbi Lesches the community has enjoyed tremendous growth in both quality and quantity. This is evidenced by the many well attended minyanim and shiurim that take place daily at the Shul. Rabbi Lesches, whose inspiring farbrengens have become legendary, gives shiurim to men and women on a wide range of topics including, Gemara, Chassidus and Halacha.

In addition to his work at K'hal Tzemach Tzedek Rabbi Lesches has proven to be a dynamic force for Chabad activities in the region. He has launched a Smicha Program, lectures at Heichal Menachem, provides Chosson classes to groups of Chossonim, and provides Hashgacha for meat at the Rockland Kosher Supermarket. Rabbi Lesches also serves as Av Beis Din for the Lubavitch community and is constantly answering Shaalos from Anash and Shluchim.
