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, emailinfo@kehillahsynagogue.org, or call Kehillah Office at (919) 942-8914.

Executive VP

Kathy joined the Kehillah about 2010. This is her first term serving on the Board. She is retired from IBM, where she enjoyed the challenge of working on telecommunications protocols, planning, and testing for more than 30 years. For a number of years at the Kehillah she has aided Oneg and Kiddush hosts, as they provide a delicious way to extend the feeling of community after the service. From her late husband, Arnold Burk, Kathy learned that we should make good use of our time here, and that enjoyment is one of those good uses. Kathy lives in Chapel Hill. This is her first year of a second two-year term.
