What Would A Rabbi Need To Do To Conquer Ramat Zion?

John emails: Hi Luke,

I appreciated your revealing piece on Ramat Zion. A friend was thinking of applying to them (as a rabbinic candidate) through the Conservative movement, and your piece raised some red flags for me, given their treatment of the previous rabbi. (Funny thing is, in their advertisement for a rabbi, they just say they are “without rabbinic leadership”–they don’t mention they fired the guy less than half way through his contract!) Do you think a rabbi coming in stands a chance of success? What would s/he have to do to be successful?
