Dallas, TX — Exciting news out of Dallas this weekend, as Rabbi Marty Waldman of Baruch HaShem Messianic Synagogue in Dallas has officially handed the congregation over to his son, Rabbi Ari Waldman. The Junior Waldman, who is now the youngest Congregational Leader in the Messianic Movement, assumed the position this past Saturday, October 14th, coupled with a congregational celebration. The transition has been in the works for quite some time, as Rabbi Marty has been preparing to step back and let his son take over.
“It’s not easy being Ari Waldman,” said Ari Waldman in a mass text message to the other young leaders of the Movement. “Not only do I have my hands full as a Husband and Father, but I am also the South Central Messianic Chief Innovator of Relevance, as well as the head coach of The Dallas Brisket in the Messianic Softball League. Now I am the Senior Rabbi of one of the largest Messianic Congregations in the world, so I probably will never sleep again. It will be like one giant conference that never ends. Because it’s my life and not an actual conference. How will I manage to do it all? Well, I will continue to rely on Yeshua and Whataburger to help me.”
Out of support for her younger brother, Waldman’s sister, Sabra, made sure to comment to us, “Don’t write about me in The Meow!”
We certainly wish a big mazel tov to the new Senior Rabbi! If you’d like to hear Rabbi Ari’s sermons and are unable to make it to their services, you can catch their livestreams and archives at http://baruchhashemsynagogue.org
