Over 50 Brighton and Hove Hebrew Congregation members are demanding an EGM to protest against what they see as anti-Lubavitch sentiments by the shul's management.
They want Lubavitch rabbi Herschel Rader to be given a permanent contract when his temporary deal expires on November 1.
The synagogue board has refused to commit itself on a rabbinical appointment.
Brighton and Hove's last incumbent, Rabbi Pesach Efune, is also a Lubavitch minister. He resigned in May 2007 for personal reasons.
