At 38 he still looks incredibly young, but when he started out as a community rabbi back in New Jersey, Rabbi Ariel Konstantyn says he was often mistaken for the bar-mitzva boy.

Today, he is the rabbi and force behind an extraordinary renaissance of religious observance and community activity centered around his synagogue, the Beit El International Synagogue, which has stood on Frishman Street in the heart of Tel Aviv for more than 80 years.
