Clergy Spouses and Partners in Search

Mondays, October 16, 23, and 30, 7:30pm ET // 4:30pm PT


Clergy spouses and partners have unique challenges and opportunities that impact their family, career, and relationships. While not employees, spouses and partners often serve important roles in their communities and could benefit from guidance, camaraderie, and support from our movement and its institutions. As part of the Rabbinical Assembly’s mental health outreach, we invite clergy spouses and partners to a 3-part series on how to participate in (and support your partner through) a successful search process and planning your involvement in your future community. Space is limited; registration closes October 9th; open to anyone who fits the description (married, dating, partnered, etc); free. These sessions will not be recorded; on-camera participation is expected.
