Dear HUC-JIR Community,

On behalf of the Presidential Search Committee and the staff at HUC-JIR, I am pleased to present to you the Presidential Search Prospectus, which defines the leadership needs for the future of HUC-JIR. This document reflects thoughtful consideration from the many constituents on the search committee, including staff and our executive search firm, Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates.

The position profile is a testament to HUC-JIR’s fulfillment of the mission and goals set forth in the document and the dedication and passion of its people: faculty, students, staff, alumni, donors, Board of Governors, and Boards of Overseers.

We also highlight Recent Achievements on page 3, which showcases the many successes under our past President, Rabbi Aaron Panken, z”l, who in four short years made such a transformational impact on the College-Institute.

The Presidential Search Committee will now commence the recruitment and evaluation of all candidates. To honor the privacy of our candidates, the balance of our work must be done in confidence. We urge you to respect and trust the search process.

The Presidential Search Committee encourages the submission of nominations of viable visionaries and leaders who wish to be a guiding force for HUC-JIR and the future of the Jewish people.

Nominations may be submitted confidentially to Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates via the following email address:

Thank you for our support and involvement in this important process.

Joy Greenberg
Chair, Presidential Search Committee; HUC-JIR Board of Governors
