Our Leadership

Our Partnership-Led Congregation

I am incredibly fortunate to work with such a fine group of dedicated volunteers and professionals. We are a partnership-led congregation, where our lay leaders work hand-in-hand with our professional staff to create and maintain a caring and compassionate community.

If you are interested in volunteering for any of these committees please contact the committee chairs through the Temple office at 805 647-4181 or send an email to President@TempleBethTorah.com.
