August 12, 2022 | 0 Comments

Bermuda is getting set to welcome a full-time rabbi with the establishment of the island’s first permanent Chabad House, to be led by Rabbi Chaim and Menuchy Birnhack.

A Jerusalem Post story said, “Bermuda is to receive a full-time rabbi with the establishment of the nation’s first permanent Chabad House, to be led by Rabbi Chaim and Menuchy Birnhack, following decades of regular visits by Chabad Roving Rabbis.

“We’ve never had a full-time rabbi or spiritual leader who could inspire the community and also attract new Jewish residents,” Warren Bank, a lawyer who moved from the United Kingdom to Bermuda in 2021, told Chabad.org.

“Bermuda has a population of approximately 65,000 residents, of whom 500 are believed to be Jewish, according to the worldwide Jewish movement. The island also hosts many Jewish tourists every year.

“The Birnhacks will be the 13th family to open an island Chabad House in the North Atlantic. The first one was founded in Puerto Rico in 1999.”
