Installation Service for Rabbi Evan Schultz

November 15, 2019 - All Day

Join us for our Kabbalat service and Installation of our new senior rabbi, Evan Schultz. The guest speaker will be Rabbi Lawrence Hoffman, who came to B’nai Israel in May to give a talk as part of the events to honor Rabbi James Prosnit on his retirement. But this is more than a coincidence. Rabbi Hoffman, who has been a leading thinker in the Reform movement for more than 40 years, has been a mentor to both Rabbi Prosnit and Rabbi Schultz.

The installation service will begin at 7:30 p.m., following a dinner at 6:00 p.m. Cost of the dinner will be $25 per person, and you can make reservations by e-mailing Chris at Our two emeritus rabbis, Rabbi Prosnit
and Rabbi Arnold Sher, will be attending. And two of Rabbi Schultz’s rabbinical school classmates will be leading the service – Rabbi Sara Luria of Beloved, a spiritual community in Brooklyn, and Rabbi Jen Gubitz of Temple Israel of Boston.
