Rabbi Jonathan Rietti - a descendant of the Sephardic leader the Ben Ish Chai and son of the famous British actor Robert Rietti, known as ‘The Man of a Thousand Voices' and ‘King of the Dubbers' - received his rabbinical diploma from Gateshead Talmudical College, England, after which he helped establish the now flourishing Kollel in Gibraltar. Having received a master's in education, he practiced for eighteen years as an educational consultant to parents of gifted children and those with ADD. With Montessori training, he has developed a curriculum which dovetails a Torah education with Montessori methodology.
Rabbi Rietti has authored over twenty five lecture albums on topics including inner growth, health, parenting and Jewish identity, and draws upon his background in the film and advertising industries to entertain the listener while sharing powerful insights on love, happiness and ‘emotional intelligence.'
Rabbi Rietti currently lectures across the U.S. for the Gateways Seminar Program.
Rabbi Rietti currently directs a teacher training program in Brooklyn, New York, under Mishkan Yecheskel. His model classroom with hundreds of educational materials is used for training teachers how to reach different children in the classroom. It is literally an 'Al Pi Darko' approach.
