New Conservative Leader Chosen
According to the Jewish Week, Rabbi Steven Wernick, spiritual leader of Temple Adath Israel in Merion Station, Pa., has been chosen to be the next executive vice-president of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, the movement's congregational arm. Read about this breaking story here. Rabbis have not been sent any information from the USCJ confirming this news. The USCJ has come under pressure from rabbis and lay leaders alike, looking to this moment of leadership change as a chance for radical transformation of the movement.
