Our 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. Its 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 by the congregation each year at the Annual Meeting.

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

Blessing of Our Sacred Work

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר קִדְשָֽׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו, וְצִוָּֽנוּ לַעֲסוֹקבְּצָרְכֵי צִבּוּר

Baruch atah adonai eloheinu melech ha’olam asher kidshanu b’mitzvotav v’tzivanu la’asok betzorchei tzibur.

Blessed are you, Eternal One, our God, majesty of the Universe, who has sanctified us with Your mitzvot, and commanded us to occupy ourselves with the needs of the community.
