Rabbi Eliezer Glatt

Rabbi Glatt was an extraordinarily great teacher, coach and friend to all of us who were privileged to be associated with him.


Let us find comfort in sharing with each other and the world what he taught us by word and deed. He was and is a great role model for all of us to remember and treasure.


HaMakom yenachem et'chem b'toch shar avay'lay Tzion vee'Yerushalayim.


May the Omnipresent comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.


May we all have only good news to share with each other.


We, with G-d’s help, will keep you posted on memorial plans and schedule changes.


Joshua Ritchie, MD, Dean with all the Refuah Staff and Faculty



Dear Rabbis, Rebbetzins, Teachers, Talmidim and Talmidois of the Refuah Institute


It was with great sadness that we received the news of Rabbi Glatt's petira. He was a real individual - intelligent and unassuming. His grasp of Torah, Mesorah in general, and the Mitzvas HoEitzoh in particular, was so useful. If we ever wanted Eitzois, we knew where to ask. His habit of providing hospitality to many was very special. Rabbi Glatt thought of hosting dinners for all the Talmidim/Talmdois of Refuah. Or to bring us his special insights from his calling and vocation as a Rebbi and Ba'al Yoeitz.


He was one of the finest leaders in the Refuah Institute, and his passing is such a loss for all of us. However, very memorable were the many times we all had together over the years.


No one would have ever guessed his age. He could out-walk all of us despite being so much older. He was a special man, we were so lucky to have had as a Rabbi, Deputy Dean, and friend for so many years. Our love and thoughts to you all


HaMakom yenachem et'chem b'toch shar avay'lay Tzion vee'Yerushalayim.


May the Omnipresent comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.


With all good wishes
Yochonon and Esther Mayers and family



I am very sorry to hear the news.


It is indeed a very big loss.


On a personal level, I had the privilege to consult with Rabbi Glatt on various occasions, and I found him to be very caring understanding and patient. More than once I felt he went out of his way to listen, to give advise, and do some finding out for specific matters I asked him about. He was also the one who introduced me to the Refuah coaching course.


Yehi Zichro Baruch. May we all learn from him.


Condolences to his family, and to all of us who knew him. May we only share simches.

Yoel Backman

Rabbi Glatt z”l a mechanech. His role as a Rebbi was to be instill a love for Yiddishkeit and Torah.


As a Menahel he strove to instill in his Rabbeim and Morot an understanding of and a love for their Talmidim.


As coach, his goal was to create self - awareness, the key to being a true עובד ד'.

As facilitator for the practicums, his insight and guidance was enlightening.


He will be sorely missed.


יהא זכרו ברוך

I am very thankful toward Dr. Ritchie and Rabbi Glatt for their professionalism, patience and loving care they displayed throughout my involvement with Refuah as I was pursuing my Master Coach and Counselor Diploma.
