Beit Chatam Rehovot

Who we are

Beit Chatam was founded by a group of inspired families ready to grow in Torah learning and avodas Hashem, feeling that Rechovot’s growing English-speaking community needed a unique place for Torah growth, community, and learning. What began as a few shiurim developed into a warm kehilah under the leadership of Rav Dovid Stein, shilta. Today, we’re an established, growing community with many English-speaking families, complete with assistant Rav, Yosef Ashenberg, and thriving shul committees and community events. The Chatam community is always here for each other, and we look forward to being here for you as you explore, learn, and connect with our community.

Meet Our Rabbonim

Rav David Stein

Senior Rabbi

Rav Stein made Aliyah in 1978 with the dream of combining the warmth and devotion to Torah learning and scrupulous kiyum hamitzvos of the Charedi world with yashrus and self-sufficiency. Hence, in 1981 Kehilas Chatam was founded in Rechovot together with three other Avrechim. Subsequently, in 1988 Talmud Torah Etz Chaim was founded as a Charedi Cheder in E"Y without protectzia, politics or profit. The school offers a very strong limudai kodesh program together with a serious program of secular studies.

Rav Yosef Ashenberg

Assistant Rabbi

Rav Yosef Ashenberg spent two years in Yeshivas Ner Yisrael of Baltimore and then over eight years in the Mir, followed by four more years in Rav Aryeh Colton's kollel (Ateres Elimelech), covering Ribbis and Shabbos. Rav Ashenberg is Mushmach of Rav Yitzchak Berkovics,. In addition Rav Ashenberg has been zoche to have relationships with many Torah giants including: Rav Refael Shmuelvitz zt"l, vbc"c Rav Peretz Tarshish, Rav Dovid Potash, Rav Mattis Deutsch, Rav Moshe Shapiro, and Rav Usher Weiss. He has written for Partners in Torah and, while living in Givat Zev, gave regular shiurim.
