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:

    Reading ... is an activity subsequent to writing: more resigned, more civil, more intellectual.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    People try so hard to believe in leaders now, pitifully hard. But we no sooner get a popular reformer or politician or soldier or writer or philosopher—a Roosevelt, a Tolstoy, a Wood, a Shaw, a Nietzsche, than the cross-currents of criticism wash him away. My Lord, no man can stand prominence these days. It’s the surest path to obscurity. People get sick of hearing the same name over and over.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
