Rabbi Harry Pell
Associate Head of School
Rabbi Harry Pell is The Leffell School's associate head of school, as well as a teacher of Talmud and Israel studies in the High School, and coordinator of the Lev v'Nefesh program. Before joining our faculty, Rabbi Pell earned an undergraduate degree from MIT in architecture as well as ordination and a master's degree in Jewish education from the Jewish Theological Seminary.
As a K-12 day school graduate himself, Rabbi Pell identifies closely with what it means to be a Leffell School student. His favorite teaching opportunity comes annually when he is privileged to guide and learn with the senior class as they travel through Poland and Israel. Rabbi Pell served as a chaplain and held the rank of lieutenant in the United States Navy Reserves and currently serves as a chaplain for the Greenburgh Police Department. He is also the core Israel educator at Write On for Israel, a selective Israel education and advocacy program. When he is not in school, Rabbi Pell enjoys spending time with his wife Lisa and their three children, as well as running, cycling, and traveling.
