Update Rabbinical Search and Visit

Update Rabbinical search and visit



The fun has begun! As of January 21, 2016, we had received 6 resumes for the Rabbi position. Of those 6, we felt 2 had the potential for being our next Rabbi. In the last few weeks we have conducted 2 phone interviews, as well as 2 video interviews. Based on those conversations we decided to pursue one for further discussion and one for a visit to our synagogue and Savannah (see more about the visit below!).


In the last week, we have received an additional 8 resumes.  7 of these candidates will be interviewed in person during Interview Week at the Rabbinical Assembly in New York City next week. We are just beginning to look at these applicants as a committee, and will follow up on those we feel are a good match for our congregation.


During the weekend of February 12-15, 2016, Rabbi Shalom Kantor and his wife will be spending the weekend with us as an opportunity to get to know the Agudath Achim community and most importantly, a chance for you to get to know him!


Please join us as often as possible as Rabbi Kantor will lead our services on Friday Night, Saturday for morning and evening services, Sunday morning minyan, and a tentative Q&A session to learn more about the Rabbi.  Finally, on Sunday evening our shul’s Progressive Dinner social event will be a final chance to interact with the Rabbi and his wife, as they attend the dinner as our guests! More details to come as we finish all the planning.


As always, please feel free to reach out to any of us on the Rabbi Search Committee with any questions, comments, or feedback. We would love to hear from you!


Have a great week!
