I would like to bring everyone up to date on the progress of the Rabbi Search Committee. The co-chairs are Vickie Semmel and Howard Nathanson. The members of the Committee are Aliette Abo, Harvey Cartine, Nancy Ebert, Lothar Gumberich, Julie Hochhauser, Joy Katz, Samantha Waldman, Judy Walker, Ellis Weitzman, Herb Woolf and myself. The committee has interviewed three Rabbis. All the candidates have been invited to visit Bnai Shalom. We are in the process of fine tuning the details of their visits. So far, each of the Rabbis have expressed interest in an interim position lasting for a year or two. As Rabbi Melody pursues her new chapter, we continue to extend our best wishes for her happiness.
