Share this article:


As an authority on community wellbeing and family relationships, Rabbi Kelemen found an enthusiastic and willing audience in the many young families who attend Stanmore shul, when he spoke during the Shabbat morning service. He fascinated members with his exploration of parenting strategies that were derived solely from Torah sources, providing them with effective strategies for raising happy children. Meanwhile, their children were being entertained by an alternative programme.

Evaluation from Assistant Rabbi Daniel Fine:

‘Rabbi Kelemen was superb. He was without a doubt a great speaker and certainly got more people thinking and engaged with Torah content.’

Participant Feedback:

  • ‘Rabbi Kelemen was brilliant – well thought out, relatable and some amazing ideas on relationships and parenting. I have gained a new awareness and perspective on marriage and parenting.’
  • ‘Rabbi Kelemen is one of the best speakers I know and I enjoyed listening to him very much.’
