The Temple Israel Senior Rabbi Search Committee has been meeting throughout the spring of 2016. We have reflected on what makes Temple Israel special, learned from other congregations' experiences, and listened to our diverse congregation.

The updates on our transition page have been part of Temple's weekly email to congregants. Several of these posts have also appeared in our monthly newsletter.

The photos below are reflections from our youngest congregants and religious school students, and notes from our community conversation. We have asked all of our congregants to share what we love about Temple Israel and what we want in our next senior rabbi.
