Shmuley Boteach

 Rabbi Shmuley Boteach is one of the worlds leading relationship experts and spiritual authorities. His twenty-two books have been bestsellers in seventeen languages, and his award-winning syndicated column is read by a global audience of millions. He is the host of TLCs award-winning Shalom in the Home and was Oprah Winfreys love, marriage, and parenting expert on Oprah and Friends. He served for eleven years as rabbi at Oxford University, where he built the Oxford LChaim Society into the Universitys second largest student organization. Today, Newsweek calls him the most famous rabbi in America. The winner of the highly prestigious London Times Preacher of the Year award, Rabbi Shmuley is also the recipient of the National Fatherhood Award and the American Jewish Press Associations Highest Award for Excellence in Commentary. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, Debbie, and their nine children.
In 1995 Shmuley hired recently graduated Oxford MA student, Yonah Bookstein, to run the Oxford L'Chaim Society while he and Debbie relocated to London.  Rachel Steiner came to Oxford that year as a graduate student.  The rest is history.
