Sinai Banner

Rabbi Mark Dov Shapiro retired at the end of June 2016, after serving Sinai Temple for over 27 wonderful years, and the process of filling the very large shoes he has left behind continues. The Sinai Temple Rabbinic Search committee was formed to fulfill the Board of Directors' succession strategy.

We will be communicating with the congregation in a variety of ways, one of which includes posting updates to this webpage. Please check back periodically to learn more about the process and our progress as it unfolds.

What's New?

Our first phase, the selection of our Interim Rabbi, is complete. Rabbi Howard Kosovske is now in place as Sinai Temple's spiritual leader.

Our committee is on hiatus, as the Clergy Planning Committee determines what a Full time Equivalent Clergy would look like for Sinai Temple. We await their recommendation along with the Board of Director's action plan in the first quarter of 2017. At that time, we will get back together and adjust our plans accordingly.

For more information or to ask any questions, please return to this Rabbi Search Committee page on the Sinai Temple Website.
