Prestwich Hebrew Congregation has selected a new rabbi after a year without a minister.
Dovid Eisenberg, the New York-born son of Austria's Chief Rabbi, was selected following pulpit auditions for the four candidates.
It will be the first ministerial position for the 29-year-old, who studied in yeshivot in America and Israel before coming to Whitefield kollel in Manchester three years ago.
Rabbi Eisenberg holds a degree in Talmudic law as well as a masters in business from Bar-Ilan University.
He will work as a team with his wife Miriam, who is from a Manchester family.
