Rabbi to leave city synagogue in '08

The senior rabbi of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation announced Friday that he will leave the synagogue in 2008. Rabbi Rex D. Perlmeter will not renew his contract, which expires that year, so "he can explore other avenues in his life," said Executive Director Jo Ann Windman. By then, he will have served Maryland's largest Reform congregation for a dozen years, she said. Baltimore Hebrew's nearly 1,350 families have been invited to meetings scheduled over the next several weeks to discuss his departure. A search committee will be appointed to seek his replacement, Windman said.
