About Rabbi Shmuley
R abbi Shmuley Boteach, “America’s Rabbi,” whom The Washington Post and Newsweek call “the most famous Rabbi in America,” whom The Jerusalem Post lists as one of the fifty most influential Jews in the world, and whom The New York Observer calls “the best-known Orthodox Jew in the world,” is for many the very face of Judaism in global media.
The international best-selling author of 31 books, Rabbi Shmuley’s works have been translated into 20 languages. A world-renowned relationships expert, his book Kosher Sex is regarded as a modern classic and he has won numerous awards including The London Times Preacher of the Year Competition, The National Fatherhood Award, and The American Jewish Press Association’s Highest Award for Excellence in Commentary.
Rabbi Shmuley is the founder of The World Values Network which is the leading organization spreading universal Jewish values and defending Israel in American media. He is a regular guest in global media outlets including CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, the BBC, NBC, CBS, as well as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, and The Washington Post.
Labeled “a cultural phenomenon” by Newsweek and a man with “his scholarly finger on the pulse of the nation” by Slate, Rabbi Shmuley is revolutionizing the place of Judaism and spirituality in modern culture and politics, and is one of the world’s most accomplished defenders of the State of Israel.
He is married to his Australian wife, Debbie, and they have nine children and three grandchildren.
