Board of Directors

Temple Aliyah: Built on a Foundation of Lay Leadership

Any organization is only as strong as its leadership. Temple Aliyah is fortunate to have superb lay leadership, men and women who work as hard for the Temple as they do at their chosen occupations. Working via a variety of committees, our Board of Directors plan and organize various programs and activities ensuring the Temple has direction and focus. The Members of the Board of Directors are elected once a year, and all Temple members are welcome to apply for Board positions. The Executive Committee administers Board activities.

It’s very easy to begin your participation in synagogue leadership — select a committee that interests you and just attend the next meeting. You will be more than welcome!
