Rabbinic Candidates - July Weekends


Rabbinic Candidates in Action 

Friday and Saturday - July 24th & 25th 
A new Rabbi is coming to CTJ! Come see our two awesome top candidates in action in July! You will be able to engage with each candidate, see how they "fit" CTJ, and provide informed feedback to the Selection Team. Your participation will let our candidates know that CTJ has an active and interested community, and help convince them that Manhattan Beach is the place they want to be!
