The 2019 URJ Shallat Rabbinic Transition Program and Retreat will take place on March 3-5, 2019 in Houston, TX. The URJ Shallat Rabbinic Transition Program and Retreat is open to presidents (or president-elect) and senior/solo rabbis from congregations that will be undergoing a rabbinic transition in July 2018. Congregations that underwent a rabbinic transition in July 2017 and missed the previous URJ Shallat Program are also eligible to attend. The program is designed to deepen the sacred partnership between the rabbi and president of the congregation. Taking time away from busy schedules creates a powerful moment in time, and provides rabbis and presidents with the opportunity to reflect on where they and other members of the congregation are in the transition process. Rabbis and presidents are given the opportunity at the retreat to focus on goal setting and establish next steps for advancing congregational goals.
