Congregations thrive on the contributions and services of clergy, professional staff and active volunteer leaders. Being a synagogue leader is a privilege as well as an obligation. Our task is to work in harmony with other leaders, whether they are clergy, professional staff or volunteers, to build, develop and maintain a well-run, spiritually fulfilling congregation where the sacred informs the practical and the practical creates the sacred.
Board of Trustees
The general functions of the board are to:
Define the mission of the synagogue, approve policy for fulfilling that mission, and take action to achieve it.
Find and install congregational leaders, define their roles, motivate and support them and evaluate their performance.
Evaluate the board’s own performance. In order to execute these functions, the board will need to determine policy, develop resources, manage personnel, serve leaders in the Jewish community and be fiscally responsible.
Board members enable our congregation to fulfill its mission by assuming the following responsibilities:
Accepting fiduciary duties
Being a leader and role model
Listening to the members of the synagogue
Transforming the needs of the congregation into realistic goals
Planning effectively for the future
Establishing a sound organizational structure
Fostering solid management practices
The Board of Trustees generally meets on the third Tuesday of every month.
