A Scholar-In-Residence program was established in 1980, to bring outstanding scholars for an entire weekend of study with the congregation on a regular basis. Our first guest was Dr. Stephen Berk.

In September 1980, we engaged Cantor Richard Nadel, and much new music reinvigorated our temple. Rabbi Levine retired and became Rabbi Emeritus, and Rabbi Perry Raphael Rank became our new spiritual leader in September, 1987. Our temple was well equipped to move into the 1990s.
