Officers and Directors

Our Leadership

 

A dedicated group of experienced volunteer leaders guides the Council. The members of the Board of Directors come from throughout Westchester County and span the various forms of Jewish lifestyle and observance. Board members are elected annually and serve a three-year term. The Executive Committee is made up of officers who supervise day-to-day operations. Headed by a President and three Vice Presidents, officers serve a two-year term. The past Presidents of the Council remain involved as ex-officio board members as does a select group of Honorary Directors.
