New rabbi starts at Anshe Sfard Kehillat Torah

As of Aug. 1, Rabbi Wesley Kalmar is the new spiritual leader of Anshe Sfard Kehillat Torah, an Orthodox congregation in Glendale.

Originally from Baltimore, Kalmar is a graduate of Yeshiva University, where he was ordained and from which he also earned a master’s degree in medieval Jewish history.

He has served synagogues in New Jersey and Connecticut, and taught at a Jewish girls’ high school in New York.

A longer article about Rabbi Kalmar is planned for the September Chronicle.
