Rabbi Jacob Toledano (left) meets with a Brazilian delegation while serving as Israel’s minister for religious affairs in 1960, near the end of his life.

Rabbi Jacob Moshe Toledano, the chief rabbi of Alexandria, Egypt, returns to the Land of Israel to assume the post of the Sephardic chief rabbi of Tel Aviv and Jaffa. Born in Tiberias in 1880, Toledano comes from a long line of rabbis and traces his family back to Toledo, Spain. His experience includes three years as the chief rabbi of Tangiers, Morocco, in the late 1920s.
