The Full Story

Rabbi Daniel Ettedgui

We are very fortunate to have Rabbi Daniel Ettedgui as our spiritual leader.


He was ordained in New York at JSLI and has served as a beloved teacher at Talmud Torah of Minneapolis (TTMPLS) and the Heilicher Minneapolis Jewish Day School, and served in roles in the administration at TTMPLS.

He directs all of our religious services and teaches and directs the curriculum for the Sharei Chesed Religious School. He is also very involved in adult education and offers a Torah study class bi-weekly.

He has been part of the congregation at Sharei Chesed for much of his life. He delivers his Dvar Torah on Shabbat before the Torah Service and sends a brief Dvar Torah via email to the congregation before Shabbat.




Sharei Chesed is a Jewish congregation where Jews from all backgrounds feel connected to the past and find meaning in their lives as Jews.  We are devoted to life-long learning, workship, and acts of kindness.


Sharei Chesed looks forward to meeting you.
