Dear Temple Shalom Members,
It was wonderful to see and chat with so many of you at the Community Day Kickoff and Rosh Hashanah services this month. We appreciate all of the thoughtful questions and suggestions regarding our search for a new, settled senior rabbi. For those of you we didn't get to see, detailed information remains available here.
This month, the Search Committee is finalizing the materials that we will use to initiate the application process next month with the Joint Commission on Rabbinic Placement of the Central Conference of American Rabbis. We anticipate submitting the application in early October and expect to start receiving resumes in mid-October.
We are extremely grateful for the input that many of you provided on the draft description of Temple Shalom and the opportunity that Temple Shalom offers that we circulated last month. Your input informs not only the application we will submit, but also the qualities we will prioritize in screening candidates and the questions we will ask of those with whom we meet.
If you have any comments, information or ideas that you would like to share with the Search Committee, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail your comments to the Temple in an envelope addressed to the Search Committee at Temple Shalom, 8401 Grubb Road, Chevy Chase, MD 20815.
