Rabbi Sholom S. Mimran

Joining Congregation Dor Tikvah in September 2021, with his wife Zahava and their three children, Rabbi Sholom Mimran became the Synagogue's second ever Rabbi. The Rabbi succeeded Rabbi Michael Z. Davies who served at the helm since 2013.  

After months of eager waiting the Mimran family finally arrived in Charleston in January 2022 and was greeted at the airport at 1:00 am by both young and old members of the community.  In an email to the community a month later, Rabbi Mimran mentioned his gratefulness for the 'warm and incredibly humbling welcome' and that in the weeks ensuing he was 'overwhelmed by the kindness, hospitality, and generosity of the community', 'a true display of the famed Charleston Hospitality'!

Originally from Gateshead, a town in the North of  England, Rabbi Mimran attended various yeshivas throughout Gateshead and Israel. After marrying his wife, he joined the Gibraltar Kollel (a British enclave in the south of Spain) where he took upon many rabbinical roles including lecturing, teaching, programming, and youth work. He also obtained his Semicha there from Rabbi Zimmerman Shlita, as well as his teaching degree.

Proud to be the Rabbi of such a warm, welcoming, and diverse community, Rabbi Mimran aspires to work with the entire spectrum of Dor Tikvah’s congregation to grow the shul and the community into a pinnacle of strength, whilst maintaining the congregation’s trademark warmth, diversity, and forward-thinking qualities.

Having worked with youngsters from his teens, Rabbi Mimran has a great talent at engaging, teaching, and creating relationships with children of all ages, and he and his wife both look forward to working with Dor Tikvah’s amazing youth directors to inspire future leaders of the congregation.

At his first Annual Congregational Meeting, the Rabbi commended the work of the shul board, programming committee, and other committees which work diligently and harmoniously in their invaluable community work.

Rabbi Sholom Mimran, Zahava and their children Ruti, Yossi, and Lizi settled into Charleston quickly and are looking forward to many enjoyable years at our Congregation.
