Temple Beth Shalom of Hudson, OH, and Hillel at Kent State are joining together to hire a full time rabbi to fulfill rabbinic duties for both organizations. This unique opportunity to engage a high quality candidate was born of a synergy in rabbinic transitions for both organizations.

When hired, the rabbi will serve as Senior Jewish Educator for Hillel and Congregational Rabbi for Temple Beth Shalom. “Temple Beth Shalom is very excited about the concept of a shared rabbi with Hillel of Kent State.” says Eric Chupack, President of Temple Beth Shalom, “We feel that there are lots of possibilities and the timing is right to collaborate together.” 

The rabbi will divide time nearly evenly between the organizations, notably spending the High Holidays with Temple Beth Shalom and working from the offices at Hillel.  As a member of Hillel’s staff, they will spark a curiosity for lifelong Jewish learning and steward students’ continued growth on their Jewish journey. “A Senior Jewish Educator will add more opportunities for students to broaden their Jewish knowledge, create positive Jewish experiences and champion core Jewish values.” Hillel at Kent State Board Chair, Robert Minster says, “While the focus of the educator will be with Jewish students, the impact of the educator will be felt campus-wide.  We are excited to once again have a Senior Jewish Educator as part of our Hillel staff.”

Interviews are underway and applications are still being accepted. The goal is for the rabbi to begin their work over the summer.
