Rabbi Daniel (Danny) Ettedgui  (


Rabbi Daniel (Danny) Ettedgui has been involved in Jewish Education for the last 27 years. In that span of time he has taught at the Talmud Torah of Minneapolis (TTMPLS), The Heilicher Minneapolis Jewish Day School, Sharei Chesed Congregation and at many community-wide venues. He loves teaching TaNaKh and uses his art skills whenever possible; in addition to Jewish Education, Danny is a visual artist fusing his love of the mystical teachings of the Hebrew Letters, Kabbalah and his maps and experiences from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.


Here are some of his experiences that have enriched his teaching: Kivunim Israel & Morocco, Leader of the Minneapolis JFCS Seder for Adults with Developmental Disabilities, Hineni-Teacher for Artists-Mystery of the Hebrew Letters, Understanding By Design (UBD)  Training, Art Lab Artist, O.W.L. Our Whole Lives Training for Sex Education Grades 7-9, SMARTboard Technology Training, AVODAarts Jewish Lens and Objects of the Spirit, Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) Etgar Curriculum Training, ENVOY Developing Skills Using Non-verbal Communication, Biblio-Drama Master Teacher Peter Pitzele,The David Project Israel Advocacy, Hamline University Differentiated Instruction, CAJE-Israel Jewish Educators Conference, University of Judaism Summer Institute L.A. and studied Hebrew at Hebrew University of Jerusalem.


He has especially enjoyed officiating at the weddings of former TTMPLS students and has also officiated at funerals for unaffiliated families in the MPLS-St. Paul, Jewish community. He loves being able to lead Mifgash at TTMPLS; especially, Parashat HaShavua.


Beyond his degrees in Education (U of MN), Jewish Education (Gratz) and rabbinical ordination he seizes many opportunities to be a life-long learner. He would love to work and study at ancient-Israelite archaeological sites in Israel someday.
