Three Prayers for Synagogue Transition

By Naomi Levy

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, January 2011

The author pens three prayers for the transition from one rabbi's leadership to another: a parting blessing from a congregation to its rabbi; a community's blessing for a new rabbi; and a blessing from a senior rabbi passing on the mantle of leadership to a protégé.
