Congregation Beth Shalom is looking for a new Rabbi!

Following the untimely passing of Rabbi Barb Moscow (may her memory be a blessing), CBS has started the search for a new Rabbi. Congregation Beth Shalom is an unaffiliated congregation of about 50 families in a university town, 65 miles west of Chicago. Our members include Reform, Conservative, and interfaith families. Our religious and educational leader must be comfortable with a broad range of Jewish perspectives. Major responsibilities include leading High Holy Day and scheduled Shabbat services and other holiday celebrations; re-establishing, developing, and leading our religious school; leading in the recruitment of new members; and carrying out standard pastoral duties.  Job duties do not include fund-raising; the congregation is financially stable. The review of applications will begin on October 15th, and continues until the position is filled. Our desired starting date is January 1, 2019.
