Yisroel M. Ovadya is new rabbi of Beit Uriel

ROSH HASHANAH EDITION
SECTION D PAGE 5

Beit Uriel, the Israeli Denver Synagogue, has hired its first rabbi, Yisrael Meir Ovadya, an Israeli religious leader from a family noted for its kiruv (a Hebrew word that means “bringing close”) activities both in Israel and around the world.

Rabbi Ovadya comes to Denver with a 15-year history of working with teens, adults and ba’alei teshuvah (those who have returned to an observant Jewish lifestyle) in Israel.

His background includes half a decade as a lecturer at Succat David in Ramat Bet Shemesh in Israel, and a decade of other kiruv work in Israel.
