Shlomo Levin received ordination from Yeshivat Hamivtar in Israel and the Israeli Chief Rabbinate. For 15 years he served as a Rabbi at various pulpits in the United States. In 2022 he received a master’s degree in International Law and Human Rights. Now he works for a non-profit organization he started called the Human Rights Haggadah, which aims to become a central hub for education and respectful discussion of human rights issues as they pertain in particular to Israel and the Jewish community.
