Congregation Beth Israel's Board of Directors serves the Congregation through the management of affairs, records, funds and other property of the Congregation. Between 16 and 24 members in good standing are elected to serve on the Board. The Board may include up to two past presidents designated by the president and approved by the Board. The presidents of Men’s Club and Women of Beth Israel serve as ex-officio members, as well as the president of the Cemetery and Mausoleum Association, Inc. and the president of the Congregation’s senior youth group.
The Beth Israel Board serves you with a deep commitment to collaborating with staff and lay leaders in all aspects of managing the Temple and its activities. They are equally committed to serving with genuine openness, a true spirit of cooperation, and a free exchange of ideas in realizing common objectives. Your Board seeks your input.
