We are so pleased to announce that after a thoughtful negotiation process, we have signed a contract with Rabbi Leora Abelson to extend her contract for at least another year (through
June 2020). The contract also includes options and incentives that would extend her contract an additional one-to-two years (through June 2022). We had hoped that she would sign a three-year contract, but we understand that one-year contracts are the norm for part-time positions. As she explains below, flexibility is a priority for her, just as stability is a priority for us. We think we found a way to meet both needs, and, more importantly, to retain Rabbi Leora who is such a capable, caring, and inspiring spiritual leader. We are very grateful that she will be continuing as our rabbi!
