About Our Rabbi


Harav Shmuel Khoshkerman

Harav Shmuel Khoshkerman is a graduate of Ner Israel Rabbinical College in Baltimore, MD. There he received his Rabbinic ordination.
He has additional certification as a mohel (ritual circumcision), schochet (ritual slaughter), and sofer (scribe) and has published his highly acclaimed Minchat Shmuel (3 Volumes), focusing on the application of Halacha (Jewish Law) to contemporary issues.
Rabbi Khoshkerman has already attained renown as a posek (legal scholar and decider of Jewish law) and misader gittin (expert in ritual divorce).
He currently serves in the official capacity of Rabbinical Advisor to the Atlanta Kashruth Commission.

Rabbi Khoshkerman means so much to so many people. But what makes him so special to Ner Hamizrach is his dedication to encouraging and challenging the kehila’s continual spiritual growth. The combination of profound Torah knowledge and mystically-rich Sephardic tradition make him an extraordinary resource for interpreting Halacha, teaching, and inspiring, while always embracing his congregants with insight and compassion.
