Get your ticket now! We’ll be taking a tour of Iceland through a Jewish lens on Sunday, October 18 at 3pm on Zoom! Rabbi Avraham Feldman, the rabbi of the Jewish community of Iceland, will present: “The History of Jews in Iceland and Jewish Life Today”!

In 2018, Rabbi Feldman became the first permanent rabbi in Iceland since World War II. Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, had been the only European capital without a full-time rabbi before Rabbi Feldman and his family settled there. Originally from New York City, Rabbi Feldman studied in rabbinical school and worked in Jewish education in the United States, England and Australia. He is married and the father of four children.
