Sukkat Shalom Rabbinic Search Committee Congregational Information

Sukkat Shalom has established a Rabbinic Search Committee to lead the formal search for a new senior rabbi. The committee is operating in accordance with the placement procedures of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR).
Based on the congregation-wide survey and focus groups, the Search Committee is working with a rabbinic search consultant to develop the rabbinic profile that will help create the formal application to post with the CCAR. A timeline is included in the FAQ, detailing when the committee will review candidate applications; conduct and host interviews, and recommend a  selected rabbinic candidate to the Sukkat Shalom Board.
A Transition Committee oversees the entire process, including engaging the search consultant, conducting research, and planning for recognizing and celebrating Rabbi Gordon’s retirement.
