Rabbi Yaakov Sadigh

Rabbi Yaakov Sadigh shared his unique journey from growing up in Iran in a century old Jewish family, which included visits to the tomb of Mordechai and Esther in Hamedan, Iran. He spent his early years in Iran and was forced to flee his homeland at the age of 9 following the overthrow of the Shah. Arriving in the United States, he navigated the challenges of the public school system before discovering his true calling within the hallowed halls of Yeshivas.

He has been working in the field of Education for the past 29 years in numerous capacities including teaching and administration. Rabbi Sadigh holds a Master’s Degree in School Building Leadership from St. John’s University, a Master’s Degree in Education and Special Education from Touro University, and Rabbinic Ordination from Nechamas Yerushalayim.

Rabbi Sadigh shared about the power of building a positive rapport with students, and shared how it takes only one teacher to change a child’s life.

Rabbi Yaakov Sadigh currently serves as Head of School at Katz Hillel Day School in Boca Raton, Florida. He believes that today, it’s not just about providing a great education.  It’s about creating a great educational “school experience”. Furthermore, Rabbi Sadigh elaborated why traditional discipline measures are not working and emphasised the paradigm shift towards teaching children how to behave.  

Rabbi Sadigh shared his unique vision of how to build resilience and grit among students today in the day and age of “snowplow parenting.”

Rabbi Sadigh is invited to lecture and present workshops on a broad range of topics including intentional leadership, building a collaborative school culture, and building relationships to improve student behavior.
