Fellow Congregants,

We have begun to receive applicants! It’s an exciting time in our search, when we begin to see the remarkable rabbis who lead our movement. As a reminder, the CCAR (the Reform movement rabbinic organization) requires us to keep the names of applicants confidential; the Jewish world is small, and we don’t want to create friction for our applicants and their current communities.

Since our last update on October 19, we’ve done a lot to prepare for this stage:

  • Engaged the Board, Past Presidents, and Search Advisory Group in several in-person meetings, which brings a breadth of perspectives to the search that is unique at this stage.
  • Identified a list of leading rabbis who interest us; we will research and reach out to them proactively, through our partners in the CCAR.
  • Built a process to handle incoming applicants, which includes a conversation, online research, and a series of virtual interviews, leading to references and in-person meetings for top candidates.

November will be busy!

Want to talk informally about the search? You can always send comments or questions to search@betham.org. Our next update will be November 16.

L'Shalom,

Deb Radin, Ben Lloyd and Loree Farrar
Senior Rabbi Search Co-chairs
