Community Conversations: Focus Groups for Rabbi Search Process

March 29, 2020 - 10:00am - 12:01pm

EnVision OKC gave us the strong foundation of understanding our congregation’s character: our strengths, values and aspirations. With that rich portrait of Ohr Kodesh as our launchpad, we are now energized and positioned to address the specific question of what we are seeking in our next rabbi.  Gathering focused input from members of the community is essential!  The Rabbi Search Committee is organizing group meetings where members can share thoughts on what is important to them about our next rabbi.
