This week on the Pulpit Podcast, I had the honor & privilege to speak with Rabbi Yehoshua Ellis who is the Chief Rabbi of Katowice, Poland.

Poland you ask? Yes! Rabbi Ellis and his wife Raissa are in Katowice to help with the Jews of the area, the youth and the “Hidden Jews”!

Not only is Rabbi Ellis a Rabbi, he is a Shochet, a ritual slaughterer as well for the town and surrounding areas.

Just a mere 40 minute drive away from the city of Oswiecim, the city on which the Auschwitz/Birkenau Death Camp lies, Katowice was once home to 10,000 Jews.

Two recent articles, one in Haaretz “U.S. Rabbi sent to Poland to revitalize Jewish Community” and the other at Ynetnews.com “Polish City of Katowice gets new rabbi” discuss in further detail the Rabbi’s work.

If you would like to be in contact directly with Rabbi Yehoshua Ellis please email him at jeellis@gmail.com, or contact him via Facebook, “Yehoshua Ellis” he will be more than happy to be in touch!

In this Pulpit Podcast, Rabbi Ellis talks about the challenges, his long standing relationship with Polish Jews and how he met his wife-a native of Poland, his background and his dreams and desires for the years to come.

So please take a listen of the first in a new series on Podcasts heard exclusively on “The Sports Rabbi” that will feature Israel and the Jewish World!
