Chabad Rabbi Becomes Chief Rabbi of Hungarian Army

Unified Hungarian Jewish Congregation director Rabbi Shlomo Koves became the new chief rabbi of Hungary’s army last week, accepting his appointment from Defense Minister Csaba Hende. In his announcement, Hende pointed out that he and the rabbi had worked together on shared concerns over the past two years and in that time he had come to respect the Chabad-Lubavitch emissary as an “extremely dedicated, noble-minded patriot.”
