Prestwich Hebrew Congregation has appointed Rabbi Dovid Eisenberg as its new minister following ratification at an EGM on Tuesday.
The position was offered to the American-born rabbi in June after a novel pulpit audition selection process saw four candidates compete for the post. But the congregation were still required to agree to the appointment according to the shul's constitution.
It will be the first ministerial position for the 29-year-old son of Austria's chief rabbi who studied in yeshivot in America and Israel before coming to Whitefield kollel in Manchester three years ago.
