Board of Directors

The Board is a dedicated group of volunteers who meet monthly in a public meeting to serve the Chochmat HaLev community and ensure that our beloved institution thrives and is financially sustainable. The Chochmat HaLev Board usually meets on the third Thursday of the Month. Board members are elected at an annual meeting of Chochmat members and serve two year terms. The Leadership Team of the Chochmat Halev Board meets with the Spiritual Leaders and Executive Director once or twice a month, outside of Board meetings, to assist in the running of our community.
