Sukkat Shalom Rabbi Search Update

The Rabbinic Search Committee (RSC) has identified the next Senior Rabbi to lead our congregation, succeeding our beloved founder, Rabbi Sam Gordon, and Acting Senior Rabbi, Carlie Daniels.

With significant due diligence, including consideration of feedback from town hall gatherings and from professional staff, the RSC was fully aligned in their recommendation of Rabbi Brian Immerman to the Board of Directors, who have voted unanimously in favor.

The RSC recommendation, Rabbi Immerman's bio, and his first letter to the Congregation are included in the links below:

In accordance with our bylaws, a congregational vote to confirm Rabbi Immerman as our next Senior Rabbi will be conducted via email the week of January 23, 2023. More details will follow to congregants under separate cover.

With the confirmation of our congregation, Rabbi Immerman will begin his work with Sukkat Shalom on July 1, 2023. We look forward to welcoming him and his family to our community.
