Executive Director - Eric Stone

Phone: 408-358-1751 x9

Eric StoneGreetings! My name is Eric Stone, and I'm honored to serve as Executive Director of Congregation Shir Hadash.

My role at Shir Hadash runs the gamut from macro to micro, and includes budgeting and fiscal management, facilities, human resources, communications, member relations, Board support, and so much more.

My work is mostly behind the scenes but is infinitely rewarding, as I get to support the vital work that Congregation Shir Hadash undertakes toward social justice, community-building, and Jewish life.

Please reach out to me! I would love to meet with you, answer your questions, and provide you with more details about joining Shir Hadash or making the most of your membership with us.


I’ve been in this line of work since 2007 and have served as executive director at Congregation Beth Jacob of Redwood City and Peninsula Temple Beth El of San Mateo. It’s exciting (and tremendously convenient!) now to serve the synagogue in the town where I live and where my family has membership.


I am a New Jersey native but have lived in the Bay Area for 30+ years. My first career was in educational books and software. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton University and love to visit Israel and other Middle Eastern countries and dust off my language skills. I’m a tireless traveler, a news junkie, an unrelentingly terrible punster, a hardcore baseball fan and collector of baseball memorabilia, and an avid reader of historical nonfiction and other genres.
