In 2005, Rabbi Adin Even Israel Steinsaltz appointed his son, Rabbi Meni, as the Director of the Steinsaltz Center, in an effort to complete his work of translating the Jewish canon, thus realizing Rabbi Adin's vision –"Let My People Know."
Under the direction of Rabbi Meni, the Steinsaltz Center and in collaboration with Koren Publishing, Rabbi Adin's dream came to fruition. The Steinsaltz Center oversaw the publication of the Steinsaltz Talmud in Hebrew, published the entire Steinsaltz Noe Edition Talmud in English in addition to the Steinsaltz Bible in Hebrew and English, the complete Maimonides, as well as the new edition of the Tanya, the Mishnah In Hebrew and many other books by Rabbi Adin on various topics of Jewish philosophy.
Rabbi Meni has created collaborations with organizations and initiatives such as 929, Maimonides Daily, Matach and Sefaria, leading to significant exposure and study of the Rabbi's annotations to the general public.
In order to preserve the treasure of Jewish knowledge, Rabbi Meni, together with a skilled team, is leading a digital revolution in the field of Jewish knowledge, developing the Steinsaltz Daily Study App which has been downloaded thousands of times around the world in addition to creating a digital archive of Rabbi Steinsaltz's teachings. The archive will be available for access by students, researchers and teachers, searching for Jewish learning resources.
Rabbi Meni received rabbinical ordination from the late Chief Rabbi of Israel, Harav Mordechai Eliyahu zt"l in 1995 and served as Campus Rabbi (1999-2005) for Hillel International at SUNY Stony Brook and University of Maryland. He lives in Jerusalem with his wife, Liza and has 4 children.
