Since being charged by the WJC Board of Directors, the Search Committee has been honored to participate in the important work of attracting and selecting our synagogue’s next executive director.

In this initial phase of our search, we have:

  • Worked with the Board, the staff and members of the Personnel Committee to clarify the staffing demands at the shul and craft a position statement and job posting to announce this unique opportunity to the public.
  • Reached out to both local and national organizations that work with synagogue leaders specifically and non-profit management professionals more generally.
  • Posted the executive director position statement on our website and in myriad online locations designed for both synagogue and general organizational leaders.
  • Reviewed resumes and cover letters from a range of individuals interested in the position on both a permanent and an interim basis.
  • Conducted preliminary interviews with several candidates.

As we enter this season of reflection and introspection, we look forward to the clarity and renewal this process affords to our community in general and to us as individuals.
