Board of Directors

Congregation Beth Israel is governed by our trustees, officers and a board of directors that meets every month.

At our meetings we have a Presidents report as well as a secretary and treasurer who review all correspondence and accounts payables.

A detailed financial description is provided for our board members as well during these monthly meetings.

Our Rabbi gives us his account of religious activities that occurred during the month.

We have many committee chairpersons who inform the board of events, both past an current that are important to the congregation.

Twice a year we have congregational gatherings that are held concurrent with the board meetings that allow our members to have input as to what events have transpired during this period.

Published minutes are send out to our board members following every monthly meeting.

We believe in transparency and all actions taken by our leaders must be approved at these monthly assemblies.
