(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Rabbi Tracee L- Rosen was formally installed as the new leader of Utah's largest Jewish synagogue on Sunday.

Rosen has been serving the Salt Lake City's Congregation Kol Ami since last summer and was elected senior rabbi last September.

Before coming to Utah, Rosen served on the Southern California Board of Rabbis and was the rabbi for Hadassah of Southern California's adult Bat Mitzvah program.

She is the first woman to serve as a leader of a synagogue in Utah.

Congregation Kol Ami has about 450 families. The synagogue says Utah's Jewish population is about four-thousand people.
