Central Synagogue appoints first Asian-American rabbi to top post

NEW YORK (JTA) — The board of Central Synagogue, one of North America’s largest Reform congregations, recommended the first Asian-American rabbi to be its top spiritual leader.

The board of the Manhattan congregation voted unanimously to recommend Rabbi Angela Warnick Buchdahl for the top post, effective this summer.

Rabbi Buchdahl, who was an ordained cantor before becoming a rabbi, has served as the senior cantor at the 2,400-member congregation since 2006. She has been featured multiple times in the Newsweek/Daily Beast annual list of 50 Most Influential American Rabbis.

Born in South Korea in 1972 to an American-Jewish father and Korean-Buddhist mother, Rabbi Buchdahl grew up in Tacoma, WA, and was raised Jewish.
