Back in January, one of the first tasks the Search Committee faced was to complete the paperwork for the CCAR (Central Conference of American Rabbis). This professional association of Reform Rabbis would distribute our “Help Wanted” ad to all its members and would then forward resumes of appropriate applicants to us.
Although a standard form, the questions were searching and encouraged us to do some careful, congregational introspection. You will recall the Town Hall meetings and Congregational Survey at the end of last year. These gave us an overview of how we see ourselves and our strengths, our weaknesses, and our future.
Recently a congregant suggested that I put the completed form on this blog. What a great idea! I only wish it had occurred to me sooner. So, without further ado, here is the “Help Wanted” ad that our potential new Rabbis are responding to.

I’m always happy to answer questions and get your input, so don’t hesitate to contact me.
