Rabbi Zalman Blecher was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. As an inspired student of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, of blessed memory, Rabbi Blecher identifies deeply with the Rebbe’s mission to bring the joy and warmth of Judaism to every Jew. This motivation has inspired him to travel the world to bring the message of joyful Judaism to Jews in far flung locations, leading services and classes from the Greek Islands to Ukraine, and across the USA. Rabbi Zalman’s warm demeanor and listening ear ensures an amiable encounter and makes him a cherished friend and mentor to many. He is excited by this endeavor of building a thriving, inspired Jewish community in Eastern Bucks County.
