As Executive Director of Chabad Lubavitch of Long Island since then, he has been instrumental in the growth of Lubavitch on Long Island and the 25 Chabad Centers around Nassau and Suffolk. He now oversees the activities of 33 Rabbis in the largest Jewish educational network on Long Island. He is also a member of the UJA-Federation cabinet for East Long Island, a board member of the Chabad.org website and two other international programs stemming from Lubavitch Headquarters in Brooklyn. Rabbi Teldon is the host of the weekly Cablevision talk show ‘The Jewish Spotlight’, which airs in the LI and NYC Metro area, and features local and regional guests to discuss a wide variety of topics. He and his wife Chaya have been instrumental in the growth of the Jewish Academy since its inception. They live in Commack, Long Island, and have five children.
