Rabbi Gabriel Botnick is the rabbi of Mishkon Tephilo in Venice, California. A 2014 graduate of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, he now serves on the school’s faculty, teaching Halakhah (Jewish law) and has been teaching the Miller Introduction to Judaism program since becoming ordained. He is also a Mohel (performs Brit Milah, ritual circumcision) and is the only non-Orthodox rabbi in the world certified by the Israeli Rabbinate as a Shochet uBodek, enabling him to perform Kosher slaughter on both small and large animals.
