Dubbed the “Hollywood Rabbi,” for years Rabbi Klatzko delivered a popular monthly class in Jewish thought to many of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Rabbi Klatzko was a regular face at UCLA, opening Jewish programs throughout Southern California. After living in Los Angeles for many years, Rabbi Klatzko now lives in New York with his wife and 11 beautiful children. Named one of the 2014 "Most Inspiring Rabbis" by the Forward magazine, the United States House of Representatives has also recognized Rabbi Klatzko as a “Distinguished Gentleman making a Difference to his Community!”
Today, Rabbi Klatzko is a radio talk show host (97.5FM) and a motivational speaker who travels the country inspiring Jewish students to re-connect to their heritage. He is the founder of the "Od Yavo Foundation" (www.OdYavo.org) including nine separate projects addressing Jewish unity and continuity. Rabbi Klatzko also works with Morasha Olami, funding Jewish trips and experiences, and works closely with organizations that have dedicated millions of dollars toward Jewish identity. His largest project, Shabbat.com is now the world’s largest Jewish social network, helping people find Shabbat in 100 countries, as well as find their soul-mate and even a job through its website and app platform.
