Letter of Agreement for a dayan and Sponsoring Rabbi of the Bet Din

I would like to serve as a dayan and/or Sponsoring Rabbi of the Sandra Caplan Community Bet Din (SCCBD). I have attended the required Orientation/Training Session for new dayanim, and I agree with the following requirements of the Bet Din.

  • I have read the Operating Principles, and I will act in accordance with them in my work with the Bet Din as a Sponsoring Rabbi and as a dayan.
  • Like any dayan, I may bring to the SCCBD any candidate for conversion to Judaism for whom I am serving as Sponsoring Rabbi; alternatively, I am free to recommend my candidates to another Bet Din.
  • When I am the Sponsoring Rabbi, I will submit the candidate’s Endorsement Form only after I have made sure that the candidate will be ready for the appointment, according to the standards set by this Bet Din. I shall sit as a friendly dayan on the Bet Din for that candidate.
  • I am prepared to serve either as a Sponsoring Rabbi or as an impartial dayan for at least one Bet Din session every year. I will treat that commitment as a serious obligation. If, due to circumstances beyond my control, I am not able to fulfill my appointment commitment, I will let the Coordinator know at once, while offering to do my best to find my replacement dayan in advance.

Contact the Executive Director (exec@scbetdin.us) for the letter with proper signature and attestation of membership in the Board of Rabbis of Southern California and your appropriate rabbinical association.
