Poland’s New York-born chief rabbi became a Polish citizen Nov. 3. Michael Schudrich, who was appointed to the post in December, told JTA he felt it was unfair to hold such a high honor in the country without accepting the civic responsibilities that go with it. Schudrich, who will have dual citizenship, has been helping to revive Jewish life in Poland since 1992, when he worked for the Ronald Lauder Foundation there. He is chief rabbi of Warsaw and Lodz as well.
