WELCOME to the FJCC web site!

the community.

Update from the Rabbinic Search Committee

Focus Group Meetings with Judy Beck

The RSC, with assistance from Judy Beck, the consultant helping us to
understand the needs of the congregation and the competencies we seek
in a permanent rabbi, completed two congregation-wide meetings that
addressed the strengths and shortcomings of the FJCC; our vision for the
FJCC; and the qualities we will pursue in a rabbi to lead us to this vision.

For the next step, Judy will meet with smaller groups who share a common
interest.  The schedule for these meetings and the interests of these
groups is below; the meeting line-up can be changed to accommodate the
group if, for example, the time set aside for parents of young children
doesn't match the majority's availability.  Please let us know if there is a
better time and we'll try to make arrangements to match:

5:30 - Hebrew School Teachers
