Kenesset Torah Center is a Modern Orthodox Synagogue. We are looking for a Rabbi to assume fulltime responsibilities.

Kenesset Israel Torah Center was founded in 1983. It is a friendly and warm synagogue serving the Orthodox community of Sacramento CA.

We are a dynamic group with a pioneer spirit, and we feel privileged to live in the capital city of California.

  • The Synagogue is looking for a Rabbi who has received an Orthodox smicha.
  • One of the important goals of our congregation is to attract younger families, therefore, a rabbi with experience in reaching out to a diverse community will be given serious consideration.
  • In addition to serving the current membership the rabbi would need to reach out into the community to bring in new members.
  • Besides the usual Shabbat and Holiday expectations, pastoral and educational duties, the rabbi should bring energy to his functions and lead appropriate programming.
  • Given the varied make-up of the Sacramento Jewish community, the rabbinic candidate must have the ability to relate to people from all different backgrounds: Habad, Conservative and Reform groups and serve on the local board of rabbis.
  • Members of the Orthodox community are currently meeting specific local needs such as kashrut, mikveh, and eruv supervision.
  • Kenesset Israel Torah Center is within a 5-minute commute from the Jewish community day school (Shalom School,) and about 20 minutes from the Jewish Federation of Sacramento, located in downtown Sacramento.
  • Housing options are available within the eruv.
  • Living in Sacramento is a wonderful opportunity. Sacramento is known for its pleasant climate, enjoyable and affordable living experience. We are close to the Bay area as well as the Sierra Mountains.
