Rabbi Vegoda

Whilst studying Management and Law at Leeds University like a good Jewish boy, Rabbi Michael Vegoda was simultaneously doing something quite radical. He was also waking up early in the morning to study the richness of his Jewish heritage with the Leeds campus Rabbi. Rabbi Vegoda’s passion for studying our heritage’s wisdom for living eventually led him to Jerusalem where he learnt and taught Torah for many years.


His gentle, sincere nature combined with his gifts of creativity and perceptivity make Rabbi V, as he is fondly called, an exciting, passionate and exceptionally effective teacher to students young and old.


In 2010, the Vegoda clan decided to relocate closer to their family in Sandringham and joined the Aish branch there where Rabbi Vegoda coordinates the “learn and earn” program, teaches informal learning groups at King David and meets with individual students throughout the week.  The Vegoda’s vibrant children, with the exception of baby Akiva can usually be seen roller-blading or riding their bicycles.
