CKI is seeking a part-time Rabbi or spiritual leader of our congregation. The ideal candidate is warm, comfortable with all kinds of people, passionate about community building, and capable of guiding the community on halachic and religious matters in a thoughtful and nuanced manner. The position requires 36+ weeks/year of weekly in-person presence for Shabbat, holidays, Sunday morning minyan, and weekday Torah teaching. The community can host suitable candidates and their families for shabbat on a weekly basis, however preference will be given to individuals who live or will relocate to within walking distance from the shul.


  • Maintaining a consistent presence in the shul and the lives of its congregants
  • Providing religious guidance and offering pastoral care, including support for lifecycle events
  • Connecting with all attendees at the synagogue, both longstanding and new
  • Engaging in outreach in the neighborhood
  • Serving as a resource to prospective congregants
  • Supporting the Board in its fundraising efforts
  • Attendance at board meetings

It is understood that the position is part-time and that the Rabbi or Spiritual Leader will likely have separate part- or full-time employment. The Board and the Congregation will be understanding of this and will keep their expectations realistic within those boundaries. The Board also understands that its support and partnership, and the active involvement of the shul’s membership, are essential to enabling the Rabbi or Spiritual Leader to succeed.
