Rabbi Candidates Announced

Rabbi Search Shabbaton Schedule

Come, Be Part of the Decision!

All Or Shalom members are warmly invited, indeed strongly encouraged, to attend and participate. Each Shabbaton will include a variety of activities to introduce the candidates to our community and allow us to see the candidates in action. There is something for everyone! Each weekend will conclude with an opportunity for you to provide feedback on the candidate to the Rabbi Search Committee.
