About Rabbi Barak Bar-Chaim

Rabbi Barak Bar-ChaimRabbi Barak Bar-Chaim came to New Synagogue of Palm Beach, our inclusive modern orthodox congregation in 2013. He received Rabbinic ordination in 1997 and holds a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Mathematics and Psychology. Rabbi Bar-Chaim has led communities in South Africa and the US for over a decade.

In South Africa he served as Rabbi of the Beit Yisrael and Sunny Road Synagogues. He continued his career in the US as Assistant Rabbi of the Boca Raton Synagogue and served as the Rabbi of the Sephardic Congregation of Hallandale for two years prior to joining New Synagogue.

Rabbi Bar-Chaim lectured for Arachim South Africa and has been involved in informal adult education for many years. He is a Modern Orthodox Rabbi, who prides himself on communicating Judaism’s often forgotten meta-values such as honesty, integrity, loyalty and the pursuit of peace.

His warmth, non-judgmental disposition and inspirational messages have endeared Rabbi Bar-Chaim to his communities who look up to him proudly as their spiritual leader.

His vision is to create an environment wherein all Jews from all denominations and from all walks of life will enjoy a traditional and meaningful Shabbat experience in an intimate setting.

He and his wife Aliza have been married for 23 years and have three children - Leora, Shira and Aryeh.
