Executive Committee & Board of Directors

Beth Chayim Chadashim is guided by a Board of Directors, elected directly by the membership. Each board member serves a 2-year term and can be reelected to serve additional years. As representatives of the membership, the Board of Directors is charged with, among other things, overseeing BCC’s programs and services, providing fiscal oversight, hiring the professional staff, managing the various synagogue committees and formulating BCC’s long-term strategic plan.
