Beth El Synagogue Center (Beth El) is a large, multi-generational, egalitarian congregation,
located in New Rochelle, New York and affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative
Beth El is a vibrant and active congregation that provides a wide range of religious, educational,
social and community activities for all ages, allowing congregants to engage in Jewish heritage
and explore all aspects of Jewish life.
Beth El relies on membership income from its 500 member households and tuition from nursery
school, religious school and day camp programs. Increasingly, philanthropy over-and-above
membership and tuition will be needed to fill gaps between income and expenses. In 2020, the
annual Kol Nidre Appeal was renamed The B’Yachad Campaign and raised over $700,000 to
cover extraordinary costs and reduced income during the pandemic. Going forward, The
B’Yachad Campaign will be Beth El’s annual appeal. In addition, the annual gala has been a
way to raise additional funds and engage the community.
The Development Director is a part-time position responsible for coordinating and facilitating
fundraising efforts. The Development Director will report to the Chief Operating Officer and will
work in collaboration with the Board, President and COO to set annual fundraising goals. The
Development Director will engage select board members, lay leaders, and the clergy in pursuing
and achieving annual fundraising goals.
This position will have a flexible schedule and the ability to work remotely, in part, but will require
working some evenings and events.
