Our Board

There are many benefits to serving on our board and committees. There’s the stronger connection — spiritually, educationally, socially — with Kehillah. There’s the pleasure of getting to know more Kehillah members. And, of course, there’s the satisfaction of making a difference in our community.

If you are interested in serving on a committee, or if you have any questions about the board or committees, email info@kehillahsynagogue.org, or call Kehillah Office at (919) 942-8914. If you wish to attend a Board meeting, please advise the Board President in advance at president@kehillahsynagogue.org.
