Rabbi Yechiel Bresler

Rabbi Yechiel Bresler grew up in St. Louis where he attended local day schools and yeshiva high school.

After high school he studied at Yeshivat Sha’alvim for two years and then was a student at Yeshiva University, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in accounting, and received semicha from its Rabbi Isaac Elchonon Theological Seminary (RIETS) and was awarded a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from the Ferkauf School of Psychology.

Prior to coming to Chicago, Rabbi Bresler was a rebbe and guidance counselor in both MTA (YUHSB) and TABC, two prominent Modern Orthodox boy's high schools in the New York area. Rabbi Bresler also served as  rabbinic intern at Congregation Rinat Yisrael in Teaneck, NJ and together with his wife, Davina, they were OU-JLIC fellows at Rutgers University, where they led programming for students and learned first-hand about Jewish life on campus. 

Rabbi Bresler and Davina are the proud parents of two sons Tani and Tzachi. The Breslers are honored and excited to join our K.I.N.S. community and hope to bring their enthusiasm for Jewish community and Jewish living to synagogue!

In addition to his devotion to family and Jewish community, Rabbi Bresler is a lifelong Cardinals fan - which should make for interesting "opportunities" in Chicago!
