Your Opinion Matters!
As you know, Holy Blossom Temple, through its Transition Steering Committee and guided by the procedures recommended by URJ, is in the process of engaging our congregants on our collective goals and desires for the person that will ultimately become our next Senior Rabbi. Many of you will have completed the congregational survey and given us some important feedback already, but the Looking Forward Committee is looking for even more information so that the Rabbinic Search Committee pinpoints the skills, character and personality that we feel we want in that important position.
The following two questions will help us build our collective understanding. You will see these questions on posters and handouts around the Temple, they will be posted on our website and they will be made available to various groups for discussion purposes. Our goal is to engage as many of us as possible over the next number of weeks so that our search matches the aspirations of us as a congregation.
