Moishe Steigmann, The Mindful Rabbi, is a past High Holiday service leader in Brooklyn and Seder leader in both Brooklyn and Manhattan for Ohel Ayalah.

Like many Jews, he is looking for a Judaism that is meaningful and relevant to him (and to his family). An ordained rabbi with a masters in education, he has been the rabbi of two synagogues, one community Jewish day school, and one Jewish camp. Most recently, he founded his non-profit organization, Own Your Judaism, and serves as its Director.
