Key decisions at Beth Jacob are made in partnership by a leadership team of our lead rabbi, our staff, and our lay leaders. Our lay leadership acts through our Board of Trustees. Our Board normally meets monthly (over Zoom), but can also act through electronic voting. Most, if not all, action items come to the Board with recommendations from our committees. Committees report to a Vice-President for their functional area (or the President). Committees develop and maintain expertise to tackle the tough decisions underneath many aspects of our synagogue community.
We use “Board Recap” to help the congregation understand the issues that are coming to and being decided by our Board of Trustees. You can get more details by following the link below. Significant issues and results are usually sent as separate emails to the congregation. If you need more information, feel free to contact any member of the Board.
