Amsterdam chief rabbi to resign in September

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The chief rabbi of Amsterdam, who has seen his authority diminished in recent years, said he will resign in September.
Aryeh Ralbag, a New York native who has held the nonsalaried position since 2005, cited his “inability to combine other work in the United States and Israel with tasks in Amsterdam,” according to a report Sunday in the Nieuw Israelitisch Weekblad, or NIW, a Dutch Jewish weekly.
Ralbag, whose contract expires in 2017, is a co-owner of the U.S.-based Triangle K kosher supervision agency.
