|Hong Kong welcomes new Rabbi to Ohel Leah Synagogue
After a wide ranging search that started in January 2010, and that stretched around the world as orchestrated by Ohel Leah’s Rabbi Search Committee, the Ohel Leah Trustees finally approved the selection committee choice of Rabbi Asher Oser as its new Rabbi.
The Search Committee received a very encouraging number of applicants and narrowed the number of eighty applicants down to a fi nal three. Each of these ‘finalists’ had an opportunity to visit the Ohel Leah Synagogue this year, for a special Shabbat weekend, to meet community members.
