Our Leadership

Temple Sinai's Board of Trustees is comprised of an Executive Committee and Trustees. The Board is nominated by a committee chaired by our Immediate Past President and elected at the Congregational meeting each April. Their terms begin in May and last one year. Each Board member must be “re-elected” in each year.

The President of the Temple may not hold the office for longer than two years. Once stepping down from the Presidency, the “Immediate Past President” remains a member of the Board throughout the term of the new President.
