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.
|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.|
|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 2016 and will be with us through Sukkot and Simchat Torah.
