Final Town-Hall Meeting – May 25
6:00 p.m., Hess Chapel
One step recommended by the URJ (Union for Reform Judaism) in the search for a new senior rabbi is for the establishment of a formal visioning process where we take some time and expend some effort assessing the strengths of our temple and congregation, and the challenges we face. As such, we scheduled four town-hall meetings so that we can have the opportunity to express our thoughts, identify those characteristics we would desire in a senior rabbi, and gather what priorities we should be setting for our leadership, including our new rabbi.
