Report on the Rabbinic Search

As we have previously shared with the Congregation, Rabbi Block will be retiring on June 30, 2018. Accordingly, we have formed a Rabbinic Search Committee, very ably chaired by Jane Joseph and Howard Epstein, to identify potential candidates to serve as Rabbi Block’s successor as Senior Rabbi of The Temple-Tifereth Israel. Under the Temple’s Code of Regulations, the Search Committee will recommend a Senior Rabbi candidate to our Board of Trustees who will have final approval authority over the selection of the new Senior Rabbi.

Rabbinic Search Update

on Friday, 01 September 2017.

The search for our next Senior Rabbi is well underway. Our committee of 25 congregants has already met four times, and we are on track to complete the search process by the end of this year. The focus of our initial meetings was to assess our current strengths and opportunities for growth. We also identified the qualities that are most important to us in a Senior Rabbi. On July 1, we posted our application for the Senior Rabbi position with the CCAR (Central Conference of American Rabbis), the organization formerly led by Rabbi Block, that assists congregations with rabbinic searches. I hope you will review this beautiful document, drafted by committee members and designed by our own Debbie Friedman, through this LINK.
