Leadership Directory

The lay leadership of Temple Beth El is comprised of a dedicated and motivated Board of Trustees who support a variety of active, hardworking committees and operate according to the strict adherence of our Bylaws.

Alongside our Board of Trustees are three pillars that together, form the supportive environment that nurtures our congregation all through the year, our beloved Sisterhood, Brotherhood and Chai Club.
