Rabbis and Synagogue Administration: Practice and Problems

By Mel Mogulof

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1995

A study of synagogues in the San Francisco area revealed several trends in synagogue administration: the emerging role of the rabbi as the CEO of the congregation and its leader in matters both spiritual and profane; the development of a professional position of synagogue administrator; and greater efforts to rationalize dues negotiation and collection procedures. The extent to which synagogues deepen their relationships with federations in efforts to enhance Jewish continuity will partly depend on their effective management.
