Rabbi Yaakov Peretz

Born in Morocco, Rabbi Yaakov Peretz studied for 20 years at the Ponevetz Yeshiva in Bnei Brak. He was ordained under the tutelage of Rabbi Kahanemen. He currently serves as the Chief Rabbi of the Neve Yaakov district of Jerusalem, as well as spiritual leader in Chevron. He has written twelve sefarim on Halacha and Mussar.

Rabbi Peretz is the SSC Rosh Yeshiva, as well as the ordaining Rabbi of the Jerusalem Rabbinical Academy. Under his careful guidance and mentoring, over 200 Rabbis have been ordained and sent out by the Rosh Yeshiva in the last 30 years. He lectures frequently in Jerusalem, primarily on Talmud Halacha and Jewish ethics.

Rabbi Peretz is a meticulous person driven by the principles of the Torah and a great believer in the love of humanity and “Ahavat Yisrael.” These are but a few of his great qualities. In order to appreciate his teachings we offer some of his lectures on our website. (This service will soon be available). He is the author of many volumes in the realm of practical halacha and Jewish ethics. His books are posted on our website under Publication. He personally tests every rabbinic student frequently to ensure his advancement.
