New rabbi for Shuva Yisrael community in Argentina

After two decades in which there was no functioning rabbi in the Shuva Yisrael community in Argentina, the community appointed a new rabbi, Rabbi Eliyahu Masri, over the Sukkot holiday.

Thousands of people participated in the inauguration event in Buenos Aires, including leaders of the community and local rabbis including Rabbi Yitzchak Salmon, Rabbi Avraham Cohen Talgam and Rabbi Eliyahu Mita, who congratulated Rabbi Masri on his new role.

A letter from the former leader of the community, Rabbi Eliezer Ben David, was read out at the event. The letter was sent by Rabbi Avraham Entebbi, president of the community, who is currently in Israel for a family event.
