About Rabbi Reuven Chaim Klein

Rabbi Reuven Chaim Klein, an accomplished author and distinguished scholar, originates from Valley Village, CA. His educational journey commenced at Emek Hebrew Academy and Yeshiva Gedolah of Los Angeles, paving the way for his subsequent studies at the prestigious Hareidi institutions Yeshivas Mir in Jerusalem and Beth Medrash Govoha of America in Lakewood, NJ.

Rabbi Klein earned rabbinic ordination from various esteemed figures, including Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch, Rabbi Zalman Nechemiah Goldberg, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Lerner, and Dayan Chanoch Sanhedrai. He is an active member of the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA) and counts himself among the alumni of Ohr LaGolah. In 2015, Rabbi Klein received a distinguished summer fellowship from the Tikvah Institute for Yeshiva Men.

In 2014, Rabbi Klein introduced his debut work, Lashon HaKodesh: History, Holiness, & Hebrew, through Mosaica Press, rapidly establishing it as a literary classic. Subsequently, he unveiled his next volume, God versus Gods: Judaism in the Age of Idolatry in late 2018, marking the first installment of a planned two-part exploration of the subject of avodah zarah.

Rabbi Klein's extensive scholarly pursuits extend beyond the realm of books. His erudition and breadth is evidenced by his contributions to esteemed publications, including the RJJ Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society in New York, the Jewish Bible Quarterly in Jerusalem, Kovetz Hamaor in Monsey, and Kovetz Kol HaTorah in London. 

Additionally, he pens an internationally-syndicated weekly column on Hebrew synonyms. This column finds its home in publications like the Ohrnet, Jewish Press, Jewish Tribune, and Times of Israel. A treasure trove of his writings and lectures is readily available online.

Professionally, Rabbi Klein works as a freelance subject-matter expert and collaborator on various Torah-related projects. In this capacity, he holds the position of founding editor at the Veromemanu Foundation for Biblical Etymological Research and contributes as a researcher for Oz V'Hadar's Mishnayos Shearim project. 

Rabbi Klein currently resides in Beitar Illit, Israel with his wife and children. He remains open to new opportunities for research, editing, writing, and translation projects, in addition to being available for speaking engagements.
