The first Conservative synagogue to be established in Israel is celebrating its 60th anniversary.

“The keyword is congregation,” says Josh Wiesen, a veteran member of the Moriah Masorti Congregation in Haifa, who has filled almost every role in the community – including kitchen duties – since his aliya in 1974.
