STAMFORD - A Stamford community is mourning the loss of Rabbi Emeritus Joseph Ehrenkranz, who passed away over the weekend. 

Ehrenkranz died in Israel, where he moved four years ago, but the Congregation Agudath Sholom will have a funeral service for him Tuesday. He had been a rabbi there since 1948. 

Senior Rabbi Daniel Cohen expects a large turnout for the service. He says that Ehrenkranz's passion and charisma helped transform the community. 

Ehrenkranz founded the Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding at Sacred Heart University.
