Rabbi Joseph Ehrenkranz was a leading North American Orthodox rabbi. He received his ordination at Yeshiva University in 1949, and made Aliyah to Israel in 2011.
Ehrenkranz was the Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Agudath Sholom in Stamford, Connecticut where, from 1948 until 1992, he served as the Congregation's spiritual leader and built it into a large, influential and dynamic Orthodox community.
From 1992 until his retirement in July 2007 he was the Executive Director of the Center for Christian-Jewish Understanding at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut, of which he was one of the co-founders. He was replaced by Rabbi Eugene Korn. He is known for the prominent role which he has played in Jewish-Catholic dialogue.
On October 14, 2010, he was presented with CCJU's prestigious Nostra Aetate Award for "his outstanding contributions to a world at peace."
