Rabbi Shlomo Eisenberg hails from the frigid city of Rochester NY, but makes up for it with his warmth and excitement for Judaism and community building. Rabbi Eisenberg is excited to grow the Norfolk community through giving an array of captivating shiurim, inspirational drashos, popular learning and social programming, and expanded shul engagement throughout the community. He will provide caring leadership and pastoral guidance for our congregants and their families.
