Rabbi Dudi Zilbershlag

Advisor and Co-Founder

Rabbi Dudi Zilbershlag is the Founder of Meir Panim. The largest charity in Israel. His vision to feed Israel’s hungriest children started with one small soup kitchen in Jerusalem. Within a span of five years, Rabbi Zilbershlag grew Meir Panim to become the major charity in Israel, including a network of fourteen relief centers countrywide.

Dudi is also a respected public mediator, successful publisher of a renowned Israeli weekly newspaper, and a member of the Board of Directors of Radio Kol Chai. In the course of his career, he has been a consistent advocate of the strategic importance of having people from different factions with diverse levels of observance or background connect, communicate and create together.

Rabbi Zilbershlag was one of the primary people to help found Private Redemption Foundation; in its vision and founders he immediately recognized an idealism and activism akin to his own. Dudi has consistently provided consultative and practical assistance, guidance and support.
