Board of Directors

Meet Our Board

One of the founding principles of Shir Hadash is being an open, participatory and democratic organization. Our current leadership structure and method of operation still reflect those ideals.  We are strengthened when the diversity on our board grows - we encourage newer members and longtime members alike to consider leadership roles.

The Shir Hadash Board welcomes your input! We have twice-yearly congregational meetings where we actively request your participation and input, plus our ears are open year-round and we welcome your feedback, suggestions, and input at any time - please reach out to us. Check the calendar or email our President to find out when the next congregational meeting will be held.
