At EC it is has always been important job to choose a board that represents all groups in our congregation. We realize that our decisions will affect not only the current membership but the also the future of our congregation. All members of our board take our decisions seriously and with a lot of forethought. It is a very difficult job at times but incredibly worthwhile knowing that our current decisions will have an impact on our Jewish Community and beyond.  The board is governed by the Bylaws.

Here is the current leadership through June 2023. Please consider volunteering for a leadership or committee position by contacting any board or committee member.
