Since 2008, he has been associate rabbi at Central Synagogue in Manhattan, one of the largest Jewish congregations in North America,. There, according to a temple news release, “he has made many important and lasting contributions to youth engagement, adult learning, interfaith outreach and community involvement.”

Friedman succeeds Robert J. Orkand, who retired last year as senior rabbi after 30 years service to his community and congregation.

“We are thrilled that Rabbi Friedman will join us in adding an exciting, next chapter to the vital and respected history of our Temple,” said Steven Phillips, president of Temple Israel.
