Lay Leadership

The elected lay leaders, including the President, Vice Presidents, Treasurer, Secretary, Board Chair, Past Presidents and Directors, all share in the responsibility of setting the vision and leading the various volunteer activities.

Central to our governance model is the concept that committees, led by volunteers, should have an active role in synagogue leadership, reporting their activities up to the Board. To facilitate this concept, the roles of the three Vice Presidents were re-defined such that each Vice President oversees a portfolio of committees, working with them and encouraging them to fulfil their mandates. The Vice President portfolios are:

  • Vice President, Finance and Administration, oversees committees such as Budget and Finance, Nominations, Fundraising Catering and Personnel.
  • Vice President, Programming and Ritual, oversees committees such as Membership, Ritual, Youth and Families, Promotion, Israel and Continuing Education.
  • Vice President, House and Property, oversees committees such as House and Property, Cemetery, Itanu (accessibility), Renovations and Security.‚Äč
