Is California State Candidate Rabbi Nachum Shifren an “Extremist?”
by Jerry Gordon (November 2010)
Rabbi Nachum Shifren, known as the 'surfing Rabbi', is a candidate for a California Senate Seat in District 26 in West Los Angeles. He is an Orthodox Rabbi and a product of the Chabad Movement that captured his attention at UC Santa Barbara and which led to his spiritual conversion. He ran away from his San Fernando Valley home at age 12 to Malibu where he became enamored of watching the strength and grace of surfers. He became a surfer, Los Angeles County lifeguard, and ultimately an accomplished triathelete. more>>>
