Rabbinic Search Process

Rabbinic Search Update 
Friday, February 16, 2018
The vote in the room was unanimous yesterday evening at our Special Congregational Meeting – more than 100 congregants came together and raised their hands in agreement to begin contract negotiations with Rabbi Philip Weintraub as the next Rabbi of Congregation B’nai Israel of St. Petersburg!
We have authorized our negotiating committee –  Dean Hershkowitz, Eve Epstein and Greg Sembler – to prepare an offer to present to Rabbi Weintraub. By undertaking contract negotiations with us, Rabbi Weintraub will remove himself from other opportunities. Likewise, we will officially cease our search for other candidates.
We will continue to provide updates about Rabbi Weintraub’s transition to our community. The Search Committee is most grateful to our CBI kehilla for your support of and participation in the Search process.
L’shalom,
Susan Marger LeVine
