SCHOLAR IN RESIDENCE

Rabbi Zev Meir Friedman is Rosh HaMesivta of Rambam Mesivta of Lawrence and its sister school Midreshet Shalhevet High School for Girls in North Woodmere. He is noted for his leadership and activism on behalf of Jewish causes, leading demonstrations against former Nazis residing in the US, French acquiescence to anti-Semitism, Saudi support of terror, and supports a myriad of causes on behalf of Medinat Yisrael.

His continued efforts and protesting against Jakiw Palij, the last Nazi war criminal in the United States resulted in Palij’s deportation to Germany.

These efforts were recognized By the Department of Justice in a ceremony at the White House where they declared,“Deserving of special mention are several generations of high school students at Rambam Mesivta in Lawrence, Long Island, under the leadership of their revered  teacher, Rabbi Zev Friedman, himself a child of Holocaust virus, never stopped crying out publicly for justice in this case.” Rabbi Friedman is a noted lecturer and Maggid Shiur in the Five Towns and has served as a scholar in residence across the United States, Europe and Israel.

Rabbi Friedman received his rabbinic ordination at Yeshiva Bnei Torah and his D.P.M. (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, after graduating Brooklyn College.

DESTINATION INFORMATION

SOUTHAMPTON, LONDON– Southampton is a city in Hampshire, South East England, 70 miles (110 km) south-west of London and 15 miles (24 km) north-west of Portsmouth. Southampton is noted for its association with the RMS Titanic, the Spitfire, as one of the departure points for D-Day, and more recently as the home port of some of the largest cruise ships in the world. Southampton also has a large shopping centre and retail park, Westquay.

NEWHAVEN, EDINBURGH– The historic harbour village of Newhaven (the name literally means “new harbour”) is situated between Leith and Granton, around two miles North of the city centre. The often windswept harbour is distinguished from the shoreline by its tall, white lighthouse, originally built in 1869.

INVERGORDON– Invergordon is a town and port in Easter Ross, in Ross and Cromarty, Highland, Scotland. Ideally situated in the centre of the eastern Highlands, the town has an attractive double-width High Street which allows shoppers room to breathe while they browse amongst the selection of local shops.

BERGEN– Bergen is a city on Norway’s southwestern coast. It is surrounded by mountains and fjords, including Sognefjord, the country’s longest and deepest. The UNESCO World Heritage site Bryggen, “The Hanseatic Wharf”, is the most obvious remnant from the time Bergen used to be the centre of trade between Norway and the rest of Europe.

ALESUND– Ålesund is a port town on the west coast of Norway, at the entrance to the Geirangerfjord. It’s known for the art nouveau architectural style in which most of the town was rebuilt after a fire in 1904, as documented at the Jugendstilsenteret museum. There are panoramic views of Ålesund’s architecture, the surrounding archipelago and fjords from the Mount Aksla lookout.

HELLESYLT– Hellesylt is a small village in Stranda Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. Hellesylt waterfall is one of the most photographed motifs in the area. In the centre of the village, between two bridges (Høge bridge from 1907 and Hellesylt bridge from 1902) the water masses cascade down the polished granite stones. It is an impressive sight in the early summer during the snow thaw period.

GEIRANGER– Geiranger is a village in western Norway, at the head of Geirangerfjord. The Norwegian Fjord Center has multimedia on the history of the region and its inhabitants. Part of the steep Trollstigen mountain road weaves through the village, connecting to Flydalsjuvet lookout, which has views over the fjord. The fjord’s waterfalls, including the Seven Sisters, the Suitor and the Bridal Veil, are visible by boat.

SEYDISFJORDUR– Seyðisfjörður is a town and municipality in the Eastern Region of Iceland at the innermost point of the fjord of the same name. Seyðisfjörður is surrounded by mountains with the most prominent Mt. Bjólfur to the west and Strandartindur to the east. The fjord itself is accessible on each side from the town, by following the main road that leads through the town. Further out the fjord is fairly remote but rich with natural interests including puffin colonies and ruins of former activity.

ISAFJORDUR– Ísafjörður is a town in the Westfjords region of northwest Iceland. It’ s known for it’s dramatic landscapes. The old town has wooden houses with corrugated tin roofs built by fishing merchants in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Westfjords Heritage Museum has exhibits on the town’s maritime history, including a collection of old fishing boats.

REYKJAVIK– Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland. Reykjavík is believed to be the location of the first permanent settlement in Iceland in AD 874. Until the 19th century, there was no urban development in the city location. The city was founded in 1785 as an official trading town and grew steadily over the following decades, as it transformed into a regional and later national centre of commerce, population, and governmental activities. It is among the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world.
