OLDENBURG, GERMANY - MARCH 20: Rabbi Alina Treiger (C) and her husband Jona Simon (L), who is also studying to become a rabbi, chat with the mostly Russian-speaking Jewish community members during Purim celebrations at the Jewish community center on March 20, 2011 in Oldenburg, Germany. Treiger is Germany's first female rabbi to be ordained in Germany since World War II. Originally from Ukraine, she completed her rabbinical studies at the Abraham Geiger Kolleg in Potsdam and was ordained in Berlin in 2010. She has since taken up her duties to serve the Jewish communities in Oldenburg and Delmenhorst, which are comprised mostly of Russian-speaking Jews from the former Soviet Union that came to Germany after 1989.
