As of this date the Rabbi Search Committee [RSC] has convened several times. The members have reviewed materials provided by the Central Conference of Rabbis [CCAR] which will help guide our work.
In addition we had an opportunity to conference with Rabbi Alan Henkin, the CCAR Director of Rabbi Placement, who will be providing support as the process unfolds. The Committee is preparing for three open forums, called “Conversations,” giving all the congregants an opportunity to provide input. The Committee continues to invite all Vassar Temple members to also contact the chair either by phone 914-456-3524 or by email RabbiSearch@vassartemple.org to provide members with a comfortable means of communicating with the RSC.
The information collected will be carefully reviewed and referenced as the profile of our next rabbi is developed. Information from outside sources, including other temples which have recently completed a clergy search, is being accessed as well.
