  • A: An Advisory Group was formed to research the pros and cons of hiring an Interim Rabbi vs. a Settled Rabbi. After 4 months of calls, discussions with the CCAR, the URJ Advisory team, and research, the Advisory Group brought a recommendation to the Board of Trustees, requesting that a search be conducted for a settled Rabbi. After reviewing all materials and an open, transparent discussion, the Board voted, unanimously, to begin a search for a Settled Rabbi. The Advisory Group was composed of Jocelyn Fry, Amy Bryant, Adam Cohen, Amanda Morgan King, Andy Navran, Tracey Litwin, Donna Thalblum and Irv Robinson.
