Bio Information:
Rav Hendel was born in 1916 in the town of Komarów-Osada, Poland. He joined the Chabad movement while studying in Warsaw. During World War Two, Rabbi Hendel and a number of rabbinical students escaped to Shanghai. After the war, Rabbi Hendel moved to Montreal.
The Rav served as the chief rabbi for Montreal’s Chabad community. His appointment as chief rabbi began soon after his marriage in 1944.  Upon the request of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson Rav Hendel helped establish the Chabad community in Montreal. Aside from leading the Chabad community in Montreal, Rabbi Hendel additionally served as the Av Beis Din (head of the rabbinical court) for Montreal’s Orthodox Jewish community.
