lay leadership

Brooklyn Heights Synagogue is a lay-led community, with a Board of Trustees and an Executive Committee that meet regularly, and with many committees and task forces that take responsibility for events and programs at the Synagogue and in the larger community.

Our members are actively involved in all aspects of the congregation, from organizing events and shaping policies to planning the growth of our community. There is always something to do! We are happy to have our members assume leadership roles by joining a committee, serving on the board, coordinating a program, or volunteering for events. And we are happy just to have our members just be with us whenever we can provide community, comfort, learning, or fun.

Our leaders are also leaders in the Brooklyn Heights community, serving on the boards of the Brooklyn Historical Society, the Brooklyn Kindergarten Society, the Brooklyn Heights Association, the Brooklyn Bar Association, and other local organizations.  Board members can access important files online in the password protected page (please do not access page via internet explorer).
