The Rabbinic Search Committee Wants to Hear From You! 

08/10/2023 01:52:18 PM


Rabbinic Search Committee Co-chairs

Dear CBI Community,

We so appreciate your patience, grace, and dedication throughout this time of transition at CBI. When Rabbi Justin David first announced his departure, it’s likely that many questions—some of them logistical, some of them emotional—came to your mind. 

What does this mean for our growing community? Who should we hire? When will they begin? Will they be the right fit? 

As the Rabbinic Search Committee Co-Chairs, we are looking at these questions and emerging ones  with openness and optimism. As a community, we have been presented with an incredible opportunity to take stock, reflect, and move forward as we seek a new staff member who can take on much of Rabbi David’s role. We are also looking for someone to work alongside and complement the skills of our current clergy and interim rabbis, Rabbi Jacob Fine and Rabbi Ariella Rosen, and the whole CBI staff. With that in mind, we want to know what responsibilities you would prioritize in a candidate. 

Please take this short survey to help get us started.

Over the next several months, the Search Committee will hold various listening sessions to hear from the community, including through targeted focus groups. Please be on the lookout for these sessions as they start to populate the calendar after Yom Kippur.

At this time, we are also looking for approximately six individuals to join our Search Committee. It is of the utmost importance that this committee hold space for and listen to the diverse needs, views, and voices of the congregation at large. Therefore, this committee should be made up of individuals who hold diverse identities and viewpoints as much as possible. 

It is equally important that this committee be efficient. Therefore, we are looking for committee members who are committed to weekly work across a variety of tasks. If you are interested, please review the job description and express any interest by August 25.

Meredith Lewis and Naomi Barnesky, 
Rabbinic Search Committee Co-chairs.
