About Leib Tropper
A grandson of the Valbolneker Iluy, Rabbi Leib Tropper traces his career in Jewish education back more than three decades. At age 30, Rabbi Tropper and a fellow rabbi founded the Kol Yaakov Torah Center in Monsey, New York. Under Rabbi Leib Tropper’s guidance, the yeshiva educated newly religious Jewish students, known as baalei teshuva in Hebrew, who wished to enter the mainstream Orthodox Jewish community.
Rabbi Leib Tropper attended the well-known Talmudical Yeshiva of Philadelphia and Telshe Yeshiva in Cleveland in his youth. At a young age, he traveled to Jerusalem to learn under the tutelage of Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg at Yeshivas Torah Ore. Rabbi Leib Tropper’s scholarship is demonstrated by the fact that he received four separate orthodox rabbinic ordinations. The rabbis who granted Rabbi Leib Tropper these ordinations include some of the leading names of the past half-century, including rabbis Maran Harav Elazar M. Shach and Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, former Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel.
Following his years of study under Rabbi Scheinberg, Rabbi Leib Tropper moved to Ohr Someach, which now enjoys a well-known reputation for educating newly religious Jewish students. At the time, however, Ohr Someach was in its infancy. Eventually, he relocated to New York, where he served as Educational Director for the Ohr Sameach operations in the United States.
Over the years, Rabbi Tropper has lectured in London, Paris, and Berlin, and at Yale University and Stanford University. He is recognized as an authority on the Orthodox Jewish legal stand on organ transplants. He continues to teach free classes on Jewish law and philosophy in Brooklyn and Manhattan and raises money for Jewish education.
