Leadership

One of the key principles of Kehilat Hadar is a spirit of volunteerism: in fact, our community is entirely volunteer-led! The Board oversees the community‚Äôs strategic vision, high-level planning, and fundraising efforts. The Shamash Team manages the ritual aspect of services. Other communal responsibilities are distributed among four committees comprised of Board and non-Board members: Shabbat and Holidays; Community Engagement; Finances and Operations; and Governance and Policy.  (Learn more here.) Specific roles and programs as they arise are also managed by volunteers. 

Our community relies on the dedication, generosity, and creativity of its volunteers to lead and attend services, plan and execute programs, and participate in identifying and meeting community needs. We encourage you to get involved, and please do not hesitate to contact us with feedback or ideas!
