Rabbi Uri’s Installation

Signaling a new beginning for the congregation, Beth Israel installed Rabbi Uri Topolosky in October 2007 as their first Rabbi since Hurricane Katrina. More than 300 people joined in the celebration that was held at Gates of Prayer, marking the installation of the Jewish community’s first new clergy member since the storm. Rabbi Avi Weiss of Riverdale, NY, formally installed Uri, who previously served as the Associate Rabbi at the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale.
