Woodstock Jewish Congregation | Woodstock, NY, United States

Posted Date 12/04/2021

Woodstock Jewish Congregation - Kehillat Lev Shalem, The Congregation of a Full Heart, is an inclusive, caring, egalitarian congregation. We are always striving to be a joyous, supportive home and place of worship that connects community and that enriches Jewish spiritual, cultural, ethical, educational, and social life. We are an unaffiliated synagogue located in Woodstock, New York, a thriving arts community in the beautiful Catskill Mountains 90 miles north of New York City and 50 miles south of Albany.

We are looking for an executive director to lead us during a very exciting time. Our full-time rabbi of over 35 years, Jonathan Kligler, will be retiring at the end of June 2022. As a congregation in transition, we are hoping to create our own Dream Team, including an executive director to work hand-in-hand with an interim rabbi as we embrace this next phase of our congregation’s evolution. 

Primary Function: Our new executive director will be responsible for leadership and day-to-day operation of the synagogue, including hiring and supervision of staff and membership relations. The executive director will have primary responsibility for development and strategic planning in collaboration with the Board of Directors.
