  Dear Friends,

We are excited to announce that after a diligent eight-month nationwide search, Rabbi David Reiner joins Temple Shearith Israel as our rabbi. The appointment of Rabbi Reiner is the result of a unanimous recommendation from the TSI Rabbinical Search Committee, followed by a unanimous vote from the TSI Board of Trustees.

The Search Committee, comprised of 15 congregants representing a cross-section of our community, set high expectations for what we were looking for in a rabbi. Rabbi Reiner has exceeded the expectations of the Search Committee and brings a very strong combination of pulpit experience, Jewish scholarship, teaching, and community leadership to our community. A dynamic and inspiring leader, an engaging teacher of intellectual depth able to make Jewish texts and tradition relevant and meaningful, and a team-player who embraces warm, personal and professional relationships, Rabbi Reiner has all the qualities specified in our search. During his visit to TSI, Rabbi Reiner was well received by students of all ages, from pre-school through BBYO through adult learners.

Rabbi Reiner is honored to have been selected and eager to learn about our various programs and community initiatives and meeting the many people who help make TSI so special. We are all looking forward to an exciting new chapter at TSI.

Our building dates from 1890 when many palatial ''summer cottages'' were built in Ridgefield, Connecticut. It was owned by George Doubleday, Board Chairman of Ingersoll-Rand. He passed away at age 89 in 1955. His “Westmoreland” became Temple Shearith Israel in 1969. In 2006, the building underwent a complete renovation, providing us with a new sanctuary, social hall, and gracious and warm surroundings for worship, study and the celebration of simchas.
