Important Leadership Update

April 3, 2017

Things change. If you received it, please disregard the previous letter regarding the upcoming Critical Board Agenda Item.

At this time, we are reaching out with an important update for our Congregation and our Community. On April 2nd, Rabbi Royi Shaffin notified the B’nai Zion Board of Directors that he is choosing to terminate his employment contract as of July 1st. Last year, when his contract was signed, the Congregation and Rabbi Shaffin mutually agreed that either party could end his employment after one year. We have accepted his resignation.

We will immediately begin the process of searching for a new rabbi. A diverse committee that represents the interests of the entire congregation will address the many items that we must consider in this important undertaking. To participate, please contact David Sabal at 203-0020 or dsabal18@gmail.com.

Our congregational life will continue. Your participation is encouraged to keep B’nai Zion strong and committed to its mission of worship, education, and fellowship.

May your light shine bright this Passover season.

Best regards,

Shane Lipson
