Rabbi Davey Blackman


During the course of more than a decade at Yeshivat Har Etzion, Rabbi Blackman became a close talmid (pupil) of Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein, a scion of the famed Soloveitchik dynasty.

It was there that Rabbi Davey developed an amazing breadth and depth of knowledge in vast areas of Jewish learning. He also has a degree in Education and Jewish Philosophy from the University of South Africa.

Rabbi Davey served in leadership roles in Bnei Akiva , South Africa, from his early youth, and also in the crack Givati infantry unit in the Israeli army. He is a husband to Deborah and father of 6 children.

Rabbi Davey displays a unique blend of mental acuity, integrity and personal warmth, which endears him to one and all. Combined with his dynamic personality and refreshing sense of humour, Rabbi Davey’s world-class lectures are infused with colour, charisma and creative thought, effectively portraying the relevance, appeal and majesty of Torah for contemporary audiences.
