Ask the Rabbi

Rabbi Michael Strasberg is Sinai Chapels’ pastoral counselor and a full time member of our staff. A graduate of Columbia University, Jewish Theological Seminary of American (JTSA), and the Wurtzweiler School of Social Work, Rabbi Strasberg also has an Orthodox Semicha.

As the Rabbi of the Israel Center of Hillcrest Manor, he was dedicated to providing quality pastoral care and developing caring and community skills that enable him to continue to serve the community. Rabbi Strasberg is accessible to our families and staff to address any inquiries pertaining to the Jewish faith, whether it is helping with a Hebrew name or explaining the Jewish burial rituals.

In the space provided below, please feel free to ask the Rabbi any questions you may have and he will respond in a timely fashion.
