Her paternal grandparents were founding members of the local Reform synagogue, but as the daughter of a Korean mother, Angela and her sister were the only biracial Jews they knew.” Rabbi Buchdahl was ordained at Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, currently serves as the Senior Rabbi of Central Synagogue of NYC, which has 2,300 member families.
