Dayan A David Shlita
Born in Rangoon, Dayan David shlita spent time learning in the Brisk Yeshivah Jerusalem, Gateshead Kollel before accepting a teaching position in Yeshivat Porat Yosef, Jerusalem. After a few years the Dayan was invited to start a Kollel in Buenos Aires, Argentina which produced a generation of Torah scholars and leaders now serving throughout South America. The Dayan then answered the call of his community in London and sought the agreement of Rav Shach z”l before taking the guardianship of the Od Yosef Hai Yeshivah. Dayan David is a member of the Sephardi Beth Din (Court of Jewish Law) which serves the UK Sephardi community.
The Dayan’s deep knowledge of Torah is the benefit to all those who come to seek it. We are honoured to have the Dayan as our school Rov. A highlight for the children is when Dayan David visits the classes and speaks in assemblies.
