Subsequent Leaders of The Viener Kehilla

Rabbi Steif was succeeded by Rabbi Ezriel Yehuda Lebowitz (Hudhazer Rov) who was succeeded by the current Viener Rov, Rabbi Asher Anshel Katz. Prior to his appointment, Rabbi Katz was the Rov of the Szombathely shul in Williamsburg which was established by his late father, Rabbi Yehoshua Katz who arrived in America after World War II from Szombathely, Hungary. (After Rabbi Asher Anshel Katz was appointed as Viener Rov, his son in law, Rabbi Aaron Yeshaye Rosner assumed his position as the Szombathely Rov).

Famous quotes containing the words subsequent and/or leaders:

    And he smiled a kind of sickly smile, and curled up on the floor, And the subsequent proceedings interested him no more.
    Francis Bret Harte (1836–1902)

    Most of the ladies and gentlemen who mourn the passing of the nation’s leaders wouldn’t know a leader if they saw one. If they had the bad luck to come across a leader, they would find out that he might demand something from them, and this impertinence would put an abrupt and indignant end to their wish for his return.
    Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)
