Rabbi Menachem Listman
Rav Menachem Listman grew up in Brooklyn/Queens, New York. He studied in
the Hebrew Institute of Long Island and then graduated with a B.A. in Political
Science and Economics from Queens College. He was the business manager of the
“HaOr” Collegiate Newspaper. Afterwards he came to Eretz Yisrael and
volunteered on a Kibbutz while studying Hebrew for 6 months. He was so inspired
by his stay in Eretz Yisrael that now he has been living in Israel for 32 years.
During that time he spent two years learning at Machon Meir and 5 years at
Yeshivat Beit El. He received his teaching accreditation from Yeshivat Beit El.
Rav Listman and his wife Tovah are happily married with nine children & six
grandchildren בע"ה. After living in Beit El for more than 20 years, he and his
family decided to join a hilltop settlement east of Beit El called Givat Asaf. They
have been making Givat Asaf their home now for the last 5 years. Rabbi Listman
has been teaching for close to 25 years and for the last 5 years has been the Director
of the English Speakers Department of Machon Meir.
