Rabbi Moshe Abady


Rabbi Moshe Abady was raised in Brooklyn, NY. He later studied under Hagaon Rav Tzvi Kushelevsky shlita at Heichal Hatorah Kollel in Yerushalayim. Rabbi Abady has smicha from the Bet Din of Yerushalayim and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Bellevue University. Rabbi Abady’s passion is to raise the level of the next generation of American Sephardim and to instill a strong pride and appreciation for our rich heritage and customs. Rabbi Abady believes in relating to the total child; nurturing each student’s academic, emotional, social, and spiritual growth, while aiming high and inspiring academic excellence in all areas. He maintains that students must love and enjoy their learning in order to truly embrace and retain it. Rabbi Abady is dedicated to helping and guiding teachers to become those that students remember; teachers who are excellent educators but who also deeply care for every student. His ultimate goal is raising Bnei Torah and Bnot Yisrael that excel in both Judaic and General Studies, are passionate about Limud Torah and Shemirat Hamitzvot, and possess true Yirat Shamayim and Midot Tovot.
