2013 Survey of Health Insurance Premiums in URJ Congregations for CCAR Rabbis
The latest joint study between the CCAR and URJ from the CCAR and URJ examines health insurance offered to full-time senior and solo rabbis, assistant rabbis and associate rabbis serving the smallest to the largest Reform congregations in North America. Survey data confirms that the vast majority of URJ congregations lead by CCAR rabbis offer to pay health insurance premiums for their rabbis, the rabbis’ spouse/partner, and the rabbis’ family.
A note on confidentiality
To maintain the confidentiality of congregations and rabbis, the RPB maintained control of the individual data given to the actuarial consultant throughout the process. No data reflecting individual participants was revealed to the URJ or the CCAR.
