The Rabbinic Search Committee is pleased to introduce …
Rabbi Stephen Slater as Congregation Agudas Achim’s next Rabbi
I am so pleased to share that last night, by congregational vote, the Rabbinic Search Committee (RSC) and Board of Trustee’s recommendation to hire Rabbi Stephen E. Slater as the next head rabbi of Congregation Agudas Achim was affirmed!
This is thrilling news as we look ahead towards a fresh start. Rabbi Slater will officially begin work in mid-July, after he, his wife Bethany, and their two children move here from Birmingham, AL.
The RSC worked tirelessly over the last year-and-a-half, reviewing applications and interviewing candidates. The committee was co-chaired by Avi Allen & Brad Kastan and included members Reuven Clein, Rose Clubok, Eva Fried, Raisa Pesina, Ron Rudolph, Bruce Soll, Stefanie Zelkind, Stephanie Wapner and rabbinic advisors Rabbi Elka Abrahamson and Rabbi Ilan Schwartz.
Agudas Achim aspires to be a traditional, egalitarian, friendly and participatory congregation.
Traditional – seeking meaning in Jewish tradition, and building on that tradition to create meaning for ourselves. Our members are inspired by traditions that connect us with our congregation’s history and with other Jews around the world.
Egalitarian – supporting and encouraging our members, in all their diversity, to participate fully in synagogue life.
Friendly – welcoming each person who appears before us, whether a traveler at morning minyan, a non-Jewish family member, a homeless person at kiddush, etc. We are a warm, close-knit, child-friendly community.
Participatory – engaging members so every member contributes, everyone is needed and everyone feels valued. We recognize our differences create opportunities for, rather than barriers to participation.
