Upon receiving Smicha, Rabbi Schmeckelstein taught high school and rabbinical students the intricacies of Talmudic exegesis, Jewish philosophy, and family purity. After twenty years, Rabbi Schmeckelstein took a Sabbatical to "find himself," during which he studied law, Indian spiritualism, pastry cooking, sports medicine, and metallurgy. He subsequently established his own rabbinical institute, Yeshivas Chipass Emmess ("Search for the Truth") with the goal of combining the beauty of Torah and Jewish culture with the harsh realities of a cynical, cruel world. Rabbi Schmeckelstein is often happily married and has countless children and grandchildren. His hobbies include berating his frigid wife, obsessing about Niddah, bad-mouthing the Triangle K, collecting miniature shtenders, and day trading.
