Rabbi Chaim Cohen



Chaim was born and brought up in Manchester. He went to Manchester Jewish Grammar School/Manchester Mesivta and then went on to study at Gateshead and Mir Yeshivas.

Chaim worked for Aish HaTorah, teaching and running a training programme for one-to-one study while studying for Semicha.

In 2004, Chaim and his wife, Dvora, moved to the United States where he continued teaching and training, as well as running events for campus students. After 5 years in the United States he returned to England where he spent a couple of years in Leeds where he was Rabbi on University Campus.

Chaim has now returned to his home-town, Manchester where he is the Rabbi of Netzach Yisrael, Stenecourt's Young Professional's Minyan. Chaim also teaches at King David High School and is the Rabbi of Yavneh Girls High School.

I hope the ideas contained below, will provide you with some topics for discussion, at your Shabbos table.

Weekly Halocha - Rabbi Simmonds


1. If you are using your garden on Shabbos ,and want to carry out food furniture toys from the house etc, you must make sure the garden is properly enclosed. Just because it is a private garden does not mean that it is Halachically a “private area” “RESHUS HAYOCHID”. If you are not sure seek competent advice on the issue

2. Climbing up/ on trees or use of a tree house is not permitted on Shabbos.

3. Take care when carrying drinks not to spill any on the soil or grass.
