Rabbi Zev Meir Friedman is Rosh HaMesivta of Rambam Mesivta of Lawrence. He is noted for his leadership and activism on behalf of Jewish causes, leading demonstrations against former Nazis residing in the US, French acquiescence to anti-Semitism, Saudi support of terror, and supports a myriad of causes on behalf of Medinat Yisrael.

His continued efforts and protesting against Jakiw Palij, the last Nazi war criminal in the United States resulted in Palij’s deportation to Germany.

These efforts were recognized By the Department of Justice in a ceremony at the White House where they declared,“Deserving of special mention are several generations of high school students at Rambam Mesivta in Lawrence, Long Island, under the leadership of their revered teacher, Rabbi Zev Friedman, himself a child of Holocaust virus, never stopped crying out publicly for justice in this case.” Rabbi Friedman is a noted lecturer and Maggid Shiur in the Five Towns and has served as a scholar in residence across the United States, Europe and Israel.

Rabbi Friedman received his rabbinic ordination at Yeshiva Bnei Torah and his D.P.M. (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, after graduating Brooklyn College.

Rabbi Abraham Cohen was ordained from the Central Lubavitch Yeshiva, Brooklyn NY, in 1987. Since receiving his ordination Rabbi Cohen has worked as a Shliach of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Following his Smicha, Rabbi Cohen married the daughter of Chabad Shliach in Mexico, Rosa Swued from Mexico City. They settled in Montreal and labored tirelessly with many members of the community to bring awareness and Jewish identity to their lives. Rabbi Cohen gives weekly lectures to members of the community as well as  counselling to individuals and families alike. Many families are in the path of Torah and Mitzvos thanks to his involvement and dedication with their day to day life.

In 1997, through the efforts of many dedicated members of the Jewish Community in Montreal, Rabbi Cohen led a campaign to erect the first and only edifice in the country which houses the Chabad Seminary of Canada – Ben Weider Educational Centre. The Seminary, named in memory of the Rebbe’s wife, Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneersohn ,  provides a post-secondary education of the highest caliber for hundreds of young Jewish women, coming from the world over, enabling them to contribute to the continuity, strength and growth of the Jewish people. The graduates are raising today proud Jewish families and assuming positions of Shlichus, emissaries of the Rebbe, as well as occupying Leadership roles in communities throughout the world. Hundreds of Alumni’s have opened new schools and Jewish centers around the globe. Rabbi Cohen is responsible for the Administration and Financial departments of the Centre.

In 2010 Rabbi Cohen was appointed spiritual leader of Congregation Zichron Kedoshim in Montreal. The synagogue, which was built in 1965 by survivors of the Holocaust, is dedicated to memory of the six million who perished during World War II. Over the years the synagogue merged with Chabad and became Chabad Zichron Kedoshim.  Rabbi Cohen serves as Lecturer and Rabbi Emeritus.

In 2018 Rabbi Cohen was approached by community leaders and activists to serve as Chaplain and Spiritual leader for a department of the SPVM , the Police Force of the City of Montreal. Rabbi Cohen attends to the needs and requests of the Jewish officers with all matters related to their Jewish heritage.

 He is a dynamic speaker who engages men and women of all ages and backgrounds. Speaking topics have included the Origins of Tefilla, Kabbalah Mysticism, and Judaism 101. He speaks fluently in English, French, Spanish, Hebrew and Yiddish.

Rabbi Cohen lives with his wife and children in Montreal
