Every two years, the Central Conference of American Rabbis welcomes a new Board of Trustees to do the important work of representing and supporting the diversity of the Reform rabbinate and their ever-changing needs. This year, at the annual CCAR Convention—held in Israel at the end of February—the new Board was installed.
This new group of Board Members includes rabbis in different rabbinic roles, from spiritual leaders of large congregations to solo rabbis managing small but vibrant congregations, as well as a freelance rabbi, a rabbi-educator, and a rabbi working in an academic setting. This group also represents a wide swath of North American communities, including Canada.
Under the leadership of CCAR Chief Executive, Rabbi Hara Person, and new CCAR President, Rabbi Erica Asch, what this Board shares is a passion for leadership, collaboration, and a vision to help sustain the Reform rabbinate of today and build the rabbinate of tomorrow.
We welcome this new CCAR Board! May they be blessed as they begin this sacred work.
