Our Rabbinic Transition

Update from Transition Committee (Feb. 1, 2018)
The Transition Committee recently completed a congregational survey, which elicited an unprecedented 384 responses and literally hundreds of thoughtful comments. We also held three forums attended by a total of 144 congregants on Jan. 28-30, which were marked by thoughtful and extremely respectful dialogue. Our professional facilitator, Rachel Weinstein, commented about how touched and impressed she was by our members’ demonstrable care and affection for the Temple.
The Transition Committee is now working on analyzing all of the input we’ve received from the survey, the forums, as well as the numerous individual emails and conversations we’ve had with many members. The Transition Committee will make a recommendation to the Executive Committee, which in turn will make a recommendation to our Board of Trustees, which will decide whether to conduct a national search or to engage our current rabbinic team, Rabbis Abrasley and Berry as Co-Rabbis. We expect to announce our decision to the congregation this spring.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to share your views with the Transition Committee, it’s not too late. Please feel free to contact any of us
