Update from the Rabbinic Search Committee

From: Jeff Doshna

It is my pleasure to announce that earlier this afternoon I signed a contract
with Rabbi Jacob Malki to be the Interim Rabbi of the Flemington Jewish
Community Center. He will be assuming the pulpit of our congregation on
July 1st.

Most recently of the Jewish Center of Forest Hills West in Middle Village,
Queens NY, Rabbi Malki brings over 25 years of experience as a
congregational rabbi, cantor, scholar, and chaplain -- both in the US and in
Italy -- to the FJCC. He has a significant interest in pastoral care, which he
intends to continue here in Flemington. Rabbi Malki is a member of the
Rabbinical Assembly, the New York Board of Rabbis, the National
Association of Jewish Chaplains, and the Association of Jewish Studies.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the members of our Rabbinical
Search Committee, for their tireless efforts in screening and interviewing
candidates, arranging for Shabbat visits for finalists, and making the
recommendation to the Board to hire Rabbi Malki.  I also want to thank all of
the members of the congregation who took time out of their schedules to
attend services, and give their honest feedback to the Committee and to
the Board.

Please join me in welcoming Rabbi Jacob Malki to our shul.



Please submit your pledge cards to the office ASAP.


There will be ongoing construction in front of the synagogue for the next
week.  Please be careful.
