Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the governing body of JRC. The Board is composed of an Executive Committee and a General Board. It’s members meet monthly to discuss broad issues of budget and finance, personnel, member services, and education and social action within the context of Jewish values. The Board is elected every May by the congregation.

Monthly meetings are open to all congregants wishing to attend by contacting the president in advance.
