For the first six years of its existence, Kehilat Nitzan operated on a lay-leadership model, and had help and guidance from a number of Masorti rabbis from North America and Israel who visited us for short periods.

ehud-bandel Starting in January 2006, Rabbi Ehud Bandel from Jerusalem, a recognized leader in the world Masorti movement, served as our Rabbi until he and his family returned to Israel in September 2010.
adam-stein On Rabbi Bandel’s return to Israel, Rabbi Adam Stein was appointed and joined us in August 2011. Rabbi Stein and his family returned to North America in May 2016.

We are currently actively searching for a new rabbi. Rabbi Bandel is returning to lead our High Holiday services in 2017.
