Our Board of Trustees

The success of our Temple is entirely do to our dedicated members and staff. The driving force of the Temple is the Board of Trustees.

Our Board of Trustees is a dedicated and diverse group of individuals who represent well the diversity of Ohabai Sholom. It is made up of the officers of the Congregation, 24 elected Trustees, the past presidents, the presidents of the Temple’s auxiliaries, and any member who is a member of the URJ North American Board or the URJ’s Southeast Region.

Many Board Members serve as chairs of the many committees, clubs, and special events that constantly enhance the lives of members of our Temple family.

The Statement
Of the Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees adopted a “Covenant of Board Service” that commits its members to our Temple’s mission of nurturing and cultivating a caring, inclusive, educated, and vibrant Reform Jewish congregation. When elected to the Board of Trustees, a Temple member becomes responsible for carrying out the sacred work of managing the life of the Temple community with the highest degree of trust, integrity, and respect.
