Join us for a dialogue between Rabbi David Ingber and Rabbi Angela Buchdahl, Rabbi of Central Synagogue, as they explore their respective spiritual journeys.   


Rabbi Angela Warnick Buchdahl serves as the senior Rabbi of Central Synagogue in New York City, the first woman to lead the large Reform congregation in its 175-year history. Rabbi Buchdahl first joined Central Synagogue as senior cantor in 2006. In 2014, she was chosen by the congregation to be senior rabbi.

Rabbi Buchdahl was invested as a cantor in 1999 and also ordained as a Rabbi in 2001 by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York where she was a Wexner Graduate fellow. She earned a B.A. in Religious Studies from Yale University in 1994. Born in Korea to a Jewish American father and a Korean Buddhist mother, Rabbi Buchdahl is the first Asian American to be ordained as cantor or rabbi in North America.

Rabbi Buchdahl has been featured in dozens of news outlets including the Today Show, NPR, PBS and was listed as one of Newsweek’s “America’s 50 Most Influential Rabbis.” She serves on the boards of Auburn Theological Seminary, Avodah Jewish Service Corps, and the UJA-Federation of NY.

Rabbi Buchdahl and her husband Jacob Buchdahl have three children.
