Bio Information:
Rav Bernard Drachman was the first American born Rabbi to lead a congregation in New York City. Rav Drachman was a strong supporter of Chief Rabbi Yaakov Yosef Joseph. In 1911 after the passing of Chief Rabbi Herman Adler (British Empire), Rav Drachman was among a select group of rabbanim who were invited to audition for the Chief Rabbi position. In the end it was given to Rabbi Dr. Joseph Herman Hertz who held the post until his passing in 1946.
