Meet the Hanala
Rabbi Dovid Reichmann,
Rabbi Aryeh Domnitz,
Rabbi Domnitz was tapped to start the Cheder by its founder Rabbi Dovid Reichman. As a vibrant & concerned community member, Rabbi Aryeh Domnitz was the ideal choice to fashion the unique character of the Cheder as envisaged by its founder Rabbi Dovid Reichman. He was born in Manchester, England settling in London, England in his early teens. Over the course of his high school years at the Hasmonean School of London he slowly consolidated his commitment to growth with his uncanny ability to guide others along the path with him already discernable at this young age. He continued his studies in a Yeshiva Ketana in Manchester & Mir in Yerushalayim where again he showed an unusual affinity to attract and help others grow with him. In 2000, Rabbi Domnitz married and moved to Israel. He studied in the Mirrer Kollel in Yerushalyim for the first few years until he moved to RBS. There he learned in Kollel whilst teaching part-time at a Yeshiva injecting warmth and creating an attractive learning environment for post-high school boys. Not one to keep his love for learning to himself and driven by his desire to help others learn and grow, Rabbi Domnitz immersed himself in numerous important community initiatives. One most successful endeavor was the founding of a flourishing night Kollel where today over 40 working professionals come nightly to learn Torah. The second includes the initiating of Kehilas Bnei HaYeshivos. Rabbi Domnitz is uniquely positioned to serve as the cheder’s parent body liaison. His unusual availability and responsiveness stem from a resolute determination to bring Anglo-style service & communication to the educational system in Eretz Yisrael. He is beloved for his personal relationships with the students of Beis Eliyohu, and can frequently be found greeting each boy with a broad smile and handshake. With his trademark congeniality, finesse, and geshmak, he has created a cohesive, joy-filled environment—a place where both rebbeim and students look forward to coming each day.
