Rabbi Jonathan Rietti a descendant of the Sephardic leader the Ben Ish Chai and son of the famous British actor Robert Rietti, received his rabbinical diploma from Gateshead Talmudical College in England. He then went on to establish the now flourishing Kollel in Gibraltar, Spain. Having received a master's in education, he practiced for eighteen years as an educational consultant to parents of gifted children and those with ADD. With Montessori training, he has developed a curriculum which dovetails a Torah education with Montessori methodology.
Rabbi Jonathan Rietti has authored over twenty five lecture albums on topics including inner growth, health, parenting and Jewish identity, drawing upon his background in the film and advertising industries to entertain his listeners with powerful insights on love, happiness and 'emotional intelligence.' Rabbi Rietti currently lectures across the U.S. for the Gateways Seminar Program. (Bio from the Jewish Heritage Foundation)
