A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Report on the Rabbinic Search
As we have previously shared with the Congregation, Rabbi Block will be retiring on June 30, 2018. Accordingly, we have formed a Rabbinic Search Committee, very ably chaired by Jane Joseph and Howard Epstein, to identify potential candidates to serve as Rabbi Block’s successor as Senior Rabbi of The Temple-Tifereth Israel. Under the Temple’s Code of Regulations, the Search Committee will recommend a Senior Rabbi candidate to our Board of Trustees who will have final approval authority over the selection of the new Senior Rabbi.
