Rabbinic Transition Process

Over 270 Beth Jacob congregants took part in the Rabbinic Transition survey and expressed their opinions on a wide range of topics affecting the shul. In addition to answering four groups of “multiple-choice” questions, they offered nearly 1,100 comments on subjects ranging from their reasons for joining Beth Jacob to their feelings about the congregation’s values, practices and programs and about rabbinic functions that are important to them. To read a report of the survey findings, go to Beth-Jacob.org/Results.


The next step in our Year of Transition is a series of Congregational Conversations, aimed at, to quote one survey respondent, moving beyond just rating “which of these things are important to us in a static way,” but “toward talking together about why they’re important and how we understand what Beth Jacob is.”


These conversations will be held in various locations around the Twin Cities and, in order to allow for meaningful discussion, will be limited to no more than ten participants. We ask that you sign-up for only one conversation, using this link, and that you only attend the conversation that you sign up for. Depending on demand, we will continue to add conversations until everyone who wishes to has the opportunity to participate. If you are unable to sign up for a conversation that is convenient for you, please let us know at transition@beth-jacob.org so that we may schedule additional times. We look forward to talking with you. Thank you for taking part in this important work for Beth Jacob.
