Letter to the Congregation

Dear Members and Friends of WJC,

As you may know, the WJC is actively engaged in finding a second rabbi! A second rabbi will allow Rabbi Jonathan to reduce his hours and give him more flexibility for travel, writing projects, and family commitments.

Last week the Board approved a job description, processes and budget for the search. The job description will be posted in the next week online and at various rabbinic schools. You can read it here. The search committee expects to be screening resumes and conducting preliminary interviews over the next several months. Our hope is to bring in candidates to lead services and meet the congregation in February and March. If we are able to find a candidate who meets our needs, the congregation will be asked to vote on them at the annual meeting in May. If all goes well a new rabbi will join us on July 1, 2020.

As we move through this process please feel free to contact me with any questions. You can email me by at this address: President@wjcshul.org.

Wishing you a meaningful Thanksgiving and Shabbat Shalom,

Gwen
