Transition Committee Updates

 

June 15, 2017

Dear Bais Abraham Community,

Following an extensive and thoughtful committee process, and based on feedback and input from many congregants and community members, we recently offered the job of interim rabbi to Rabbi Ben Greenfield. We are delighted to say that Rabbi Greenfield has enthusiastically accepted the position. Rabbi Greenfield wrote, "This is such a wonderful opportunity, and I am honored and moved by the trust that you and the community are placing in me." In the next few days the Executive Board will finalize the agreement and signing of a contract. Rabbi Greenfield will be joining us in early August, first to spend a few days for professional development with Rabbi Shafner, and then beginning his tenure around August 5, 2017.

Much thanks to all on the Transition Committee, the Board, and those of you in our community who have been essential to bringing us to this point in our search for interim rabbinic coverage.

Shabbat Shalom,

Martha Ginsburg - Chair, Transition Committee
