President of Reconstructionist seminary to step down

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

NEW YORK (JTA) — Rabbi Dan Ehrenkrantz will step down as president of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College.

Ehrenkrantz on Thursday released a statement announcing that he would be leaving the position he held for more than a decade at the college in Wyncote, Pa.

“As I look at RRC today, I see an organization uniquely poised to lead and guide the Jewish community,” Ehrenkrantz said. “I am proud of what we have accomplished. It has been a tremendous blessing for me to advance the vision and serve the people of the Reconstructionist movement.”

Ehrenkrantz was credited in the statement for overseeing a $50 million fundraising campaign at the college, said to be the largest in the RRC’s history, and initiating its first strategic plan.

David Roberts, the chair of RRC’s board, said he reluctantly accepted the resignation and that a search committee to find a replacement will soon be convened.
