Welcome NAORRR members and those visiting for the first time.
NAORRR, an affiliate of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, was founded in 1984. Our purpose is to provide support and advocacy for, and to foster fellowship among, retired and about to be retired rabbis, their spouses/partners and surviving spouses/partners. NAORRR seeks to present opportunities for discussion of the practical problems and needs of its members; to enable its members to continue their efforts to preserve and promote Judaism; to provide opportunities for scholarly stimulation and Torah study, and to continue strengthening and supporting the CCAR in its endeavors.
We'd love to keep in touch with you! NAORRRnet is one of the ways we can stay in touch. To sign up go here and follow the instructions to sign up.
Continuing Rabbinic Education
We want to remind members that a new system requiring Continuing Rabbinic Education for all rabbis, including retired rabbis, is soon to go into effect. As of July 1, during its first year of operation, everyone will be required to take 2 hours of Ethics education. (After the first year, the landscape will open up to include all manner of Judaica.) This means taking two one-hour classes, and we hope to be able to offer one hour at our upcoming Convention in January. To fulfill the other hour, the CCAR has a number of recorded webinars and classes that you may watch to fulfill the requirement. Classes archived so far are listed below, accessed through the CCAR website, and more classes will be coming during the year. This is a self-reporting requirement, so you will be asked next year, as part of your dues form, to attest that you have taken 2 Ethics classes.
For more information about the whole CRE process, go to the CCAR website. The FAQ sheet is located in the middle of the website page, right above the title “Highlighted Programs”. For a list of archived ethics webinars, go here.
