In 2012, Altshul transitioned to a new leadership structure: instead of having a steering committee for longer-term planning and Shamashim for day-to-day functions, we now have a series of teams, each one of which is responsible for some part of Altshul’s activities, like davening, social action, and life cycle events.
In addition to the individual teams above, Altshul has a leadership team, composed of some of the team leaders, that meets a few times a year to coordinate the calendar, plan community meetings and check in on Altshul’s overall well-being. The executive team is composed of Jacob Baskin, David Firestone, Rachel Geballe, Elana Glasner, Leah Koenig, Eytan Kurshan, Charlie Paradise, Amanda Pogany, and Miriam Zahavy.
More About Altshul’s Leadership
We rolled out the new leadership structure with a D’var Torah on June 9th, 2012. Read the D’var Torah here for more information about why we chose to change the way Altshul runs. Additionally, you can get more information about the individual teams.
