To begin with, Rabbi David Stav is a tough person to interview. With all the
activity going on in his office on the second floor of Shoham’s City Hall, where
he has served as municipal rabbi since 1998, it isn’t clear just where his
attention is focused – on the mobile phone that keeps ringing, the side
conversation he’s having with his secretary, or on the guest on the other side
of his modest desk.At the age of 53, Stav’s energy doesn’t exactly
electrify the room, but one can certainly feel the rabbi’s clear sense of
urgency and purpose.
