Rabbi Mendy & Chaya Hecht are honored to be serving Jews from all walks of life in North Forest Hills.
Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, Rabbi Mendy attended the local Yeshivah College and enjoyed being active in arranging extra curricular programs and community events. He continued his Judaic studies as well as outreach and chaplaincy care in Israel and Canada, and spent considerable time doing even more outreach work in Ukraine’s capital of Kiev. While finishing his Rabbinical studies in New Jersey and then in New York, Rabbi Mendy met his wife Chaya, a graduate of Associated Beth Rivkah Schools in New York and Bet Chana Seminary in Israel.
With their varied experience in cultural programming from communities in Arizona, California, Ukraine, London, Israel, New Jersey and more, together with their young charming and kind approach, Rabbi Mendy and Chaya along with Hadassa, Peretz, Akiva, and Chana look forward to hosting you at exciting Jewish events year round.
