Rabbi Sara Abrams begins August 1 as new CBI Rabbi !
We are very pleased to announce that we have successfully negotiated hiring Rabbi Sara Abrams as our congregation’s rabbi. The position will be three-quarter time, starting on August 1, 2016.
Rabbi Sara has very impressive credentials, and CBI is truly blessed to have found and hired such a wonderful match for our congregation. Many deserving thanks are in order to all who contributed to this important process.
For questions, please contact CBI co-president, David Halimi .
A transition has occurred at CBI as we have said goodbye to Rabbi Julie Hilton Danan. We wish to thank her and Avraham for their many years of service to our community and wish them well in their new adventure. Rabbi Danan has become the rabbi at Pleasantville Community Synagogue, and can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In October 2015 through May 2016, we welcomed Rabbi David Zaslow as our interim rabbi. Serving half-time in his home community in Ashland, OR, he specializes in working in a part-time capacity as an interim rabbi. Please see Our Rabbi for more details. Thanks to Rabbi Zaslow for his help and support during this transition period.
The transition will continue in August 2016 as we welcome Rabbi Sara Abrams as our new rabbi. Stay tuned as we begin this next chapter at CBI.
If you need to contact CBI (urgent or otherwise), email co-president Carol Edelman at email@example.com or co-president David Halimi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
