Rabbi Zalman Simon is no stranger to the Bethlehem area. Zalman was raised in Delmar and active in Chabad outreach activities from his early youth.
After studying in Yeshivot in the USA and South America, Zalman spent a year in Israel. There he taught and mentored college students, many of whom seek his counsel and advice until today. He then returned to the USA where he received his Rabbinical ordination from the Central Chabad Rabbinical Court in Brooklyn, New York.
For Chanie, growing up in Milwaukee, WI, an open home to all was a natural way of life. After graduating from High School in Morristown, NJ, she received a teacher’s diploma in education from the Beit Chana Teachers Seminary in Tzfat. Chanie then worked for two years as a mentor to high school students in Florida. In 2008, she coordinated programming for the Friendship Circle chapter in Stamford, Connecticut.
The Simons are joined by their adorable children Mendel and Rochel Leah, who already have become primary partners in their parent’s work.
