Meet the Landas

 

Rabbi Menachem Landa

  
        I was born in Vancouver and grew up in Montreal. I studied in Montreal through high school. I then traveled to Los Angeles to learn under Rabbi Ezra Schochet, one of the greatest Jewish scholars in our times. From there I studied in Brooklyn. I taught high school and college students in Miami, and Los Angeles, and finally completed my Rabbinical degree there.

        From a very young age, I had only one dream (or 2 if you include becoming a world-famous hockey player), to reach out to Jews in whatever location I might find myself in, help them in any way that I could, and show them the beauty of their heritage. I've been accomplishing this goal since the age of 14. I've been a camp counselor and Head Counselor, as well as Director. I led communal Passover Seders in Latvia. I teach Torah classes and one-on-one Torah learning in the communities I have lived in. (My dream of becoming a world-famous hockey player is currently on hold :)     

Mrs. Adina Landa
    
I was born and raised in San Diego, CA.  I was educated in Bais Chana High School of Los Angeles and furthered my studies at BC Teachers Seminary in Tzfat, Israel. I then spent a year working for my high school as an extra-curricular program coordinator. I share the same dream as my husband, coupled with a strong passion for teaching. As a mom of three, I enjoy every minute with my kids.  

   
Ever since we were married, we began setting the groundwork to build a most vibrant Jewish community in Novato. We hope to visit many homes and strengthen Jewish identity and awareness throughout the city. Together with our 3 children, we form a most powerful team that will bring warmth and happiness to  friends, families, and the community around us.
