He received his rabbinic ordination from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary. Upon completion of his studies at YU, Rabbi Metzger returned to Yeshivat Har Etzion and studied in the Kollel Gavoah for three years.Rabbi Metzger has long sought to bring serious academic rigor to his Torah learning, incorporating his knowledge of Mathematics in teaching at Mesivta Rabbi Shimshon Rafael Hirsch, and utilizing his knowledge of Machine Learning to create a predictive neural network for Taamei Hamikra (the cantillation notes of the Torah reading). While in Yeshivat Har Etzion, Rabbi Chaim was involved with the American program, teaching and mentoring Gap Year students.
