Lay Leadership - Congregation Sherith Israel

The Board of Trustees

Sherith Israel’s trustees are the voice of the congregation in the governance of the synagogue.  The board sets policy for the congregation, engages the clergy and executive director, and establishes programming goals.  All trustees chair or serve on committees in addition to their board duties and are active in the life of the congregation.

We welcome your comments and questions about Sherith Israel’s governance. Please email our board president.
