Comment From:
Re: Overview: Congregation Chai Odom

Rabbi Shloma Margolis became the rabbi of Congregation Chai Odom in 1949, after immigrating with his family to America in 1947. He remained rabbi of the synagogue on Dorchester until the synagogue moved to Brighton in 1970, and continued to serve as rabbi there until he moved to Bnei Brak, Israel with his wife in 1991. His son-in-law, Rabbi Dovid Moskovitz, is the current rabbi of Congregation Chai Odom. Rabbi Margolis is missed by all those who knew him in Boston, and continues to follow up with several of his former congregants in Israel.
