Modern Orthodox, Zionist Rabbi Chosen as Rabbi for Hadassah Medical

from The Jerusalem Post:

Hadassah Medical Organization gets a Zionist rabbi

The Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) has chosen a Modern Orthodox, Zionist rabbi – Moshe Klein – to be the rabbi of its medical institutions, succeeding its longtime rabbi, Yaacov Rakovski, who died last January.

The announcement last week thus put to an end speculation and concern – which was even expressed in a large advertisement in The Jerusalem Post, that political and other pressures would lead to the appointment of an ultra-Orthodox rabbi, without the Zionist credentials of the Women’s Zionist Organization of America that owns the medical centers.

For the past 19 years, Klein has served simultaneously as head of Bnei Akiva Tzfira girls’ schools and deputy chairman of all Bnei Akiva boys and girls schools.
