Wildes & Weinberg, P.C., America’s preeminent immigration law firm and O visa experts, is pleased to announce that its Managing Partner, Michael Wildes, secured an O-1 visa for Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks. The Rabbi is now a Visiting Professor at Yeshiva University and New York University. In addition, he will be a featured scholar-in-residence and keynote speaker in other Jewish institutions throughout the United States.

The O-1 visa to the United States is available to an individual who possesses “extraordinary ability” in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics or who has a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and has been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements. To qualify for an O-1 visa, an applicant must demonstrate extraordinary ability by showing that the individual has reached a level of expertise that is shared by only a small percentage of people, prove sustained national or international acclaim, and must be coming temporarily to the United States to continue to work in the area of his or her extraordinary ability.

Rabbi Lord Sacks held a position of distinction as Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth from 1991 to 2013. He was the sixth incumbent since the role was formalized in 1845. Prior to this, he served as Principal of Jews College as well as Rabbi of the Golders Green and Marble Arch synagogues, both located in the United Kingdom. No stranger to academia, he holds 14 honorary degrees, including a Doctor of Divinity, and has been a visiting professor at several universities throughout Britain, the United States and Israel. Moreover, the Rabbi has merited numerous prizes and received substantial recognition above that which is ordinarily encountered. As a prominent author of more than 24 books, the rabbi is a frequent contributor to radio, television, and national press.

The attainment of an O-1 visa for Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks represents yet another success for Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. as the firm has served as immigration counsel to an esteemed roster of renowned clientele who wish to pursue careers in the United States.
