Rabbi Search

Latest News- Welcome, Rabbi Warner!

April 6, 2022

Hello fellow CBEers!

I am thrilled to share with you the good news that we have a fully signed and executed contract with Rabbi Warner Ferratier! I am so excited that Rabbi Warner will be joining us on July 1, 2022 to serve as Beth Emeth's next rabbi. 

Over the next several months we will be working to plan a series of on-boarding activities for Rabbi Warner, as he likes to be called, including events where you will have the opportunity to meet and interact with him. I encourage each of you to take the opportunity to get to know him. 

About Rabbi Warner

As we get ready to enter our next fiscal year on July 1 we have some amazing opportunities ahead of us. Rabbi Warner is excited to work with us to review and update our education programs focusing on a culture of learning through the ages - from our youngest learners to our oldest learners. We have started the search for a new executive director and the search for a new BEECC director is underway. The opportunities are endless and I can't wait to see them all in action!

Stay tuned for more information in the days, weeks, and months ahead. 

See you around the shul!


March 1, 2022 Update

Mazel Tov to the members of Congregation Beth Emeth on your selection of a new permanent rabbi for our synagogue. What a journey we have taken together: surveys, town hall meetings, emails, and conversations
helped us welcome three highly qualified candidates to Herndon for community weekends in-person and on Zoom. Ultimately, you made a wonderful choice, and as reported by CBE President Leslie Lesch, the position was offered to and accepted by Rabbi Warner Ferratier.

There are still steps to be taken in completing a contract, and Leslie will keep everyone informed as to when that (hopefully) happens. But we should all still feel good about where we are right now. I am hoping that
soon we will all be able to rejoice and begin the process of onboarding CBE’s newest permanent Rabbi.

Welcoming the New Rabbi

I look forward to heading up the events that will welcome our new Rabbi to our community. Certainly this will not be an easy task and most certainly not one that can be done alone. So I am reaching out to ALL CBE members who would like to be involved in the process of welcoming our Rabbi to contact me at to offer your assistance,
creativity and manpower as we take the next steps in the Rabbi Search process.

I must thank the wonderful congregants who served on the Rabbi Search Committee: Fran Besalel, Sean Forman, Linda Harber, David Kamerling, Denise Moldover, Yael Pollikoff, Steve Pregozin, Bob Sandler, and Michelle Tinkoff. They worked very hard to put their best efforts forth to serve your
best interests.
