Rabbi Moshe Kahn was appointed president of the Rabbinical Council of Victoria (RCV) at its AGM on Monday.
As a longstanding and influential member of the RCV committee, director of Chabad Youth, and the rabbi of Daminyan shule, Rabbi Kahn assumes the presidency with a wealth of experience.
“I am honoured to serve as president of the Rabbinical Council of Victoria and look forward to working closely with our dedicated members to further strengthen our community bonds and enhance the spiritual wellbeing of our communities,” Rabbi Kahn said.
Outgoing president Rabbi Philip Heilbrunn expressed his enthusiasm for the transition.
“I am so pleased to pass on the mantle to a rabbi with such energetic and innovative vision supported by a dedicated and experienced committee,” he said.
“Rabbi Kahn’s vision aligns with the RCV’s commitment to fostering a vibrant and connected rabbinate to serve the Melbourne Jewish community.”
The RCV committee, together with the executive director, has played a pivotal role in shaping the organisation’s strategic plan, which prioritises unity and collaboration among rabbis and their congregations, aiming to enhance community participation and strengthen the bonds among members of the Jewish community.
“The RCV looks ahead to a future filled with growth, collaboration and strengthened community ties under the dynamic leadership of Rabbi Moshe Kahn,” the RCV said.
