Our dynamic congregation in Abington, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Philadelphia) is looking for a multi-faceted individual who is knowledgeable of “all trades” and a “master” of some.


Five years minimum experience successfully supervising a Synagogue, business and/or a not-for-profit association.  We are searching for an individual who can comfortably interact with our members, clergy, lay leaders, office and professional staff.  Our Executive Director will oversee the day-to-day Synagogue operations while insisting on keeping the proverbial lights on!


“Can you keep your head while all others around you are losing theirs and blaming it on you?”  Our candidate must have consummate computer skills and the ability to continually review all technological needs.  Other responsibilities will include:  overseeing the Synagogue website including updates and improvements, manage and maintain all fiscal office functions including payroll, annual budgets and reports, weekly A/P checks, member account management, banking relations, and credit card accounts.  You will also need awareness of the facilities' maintenance needs and feel comfortable overseeing the maintenance personnel.


An ability to be flexible.  Being the Executive Director will require attendance at times with lay leaders in meetings that happen after 5:00 p.m.and on Friday nights and weekends.  We are looking for an individual who enjoys working with people.  A job description like this cannot cover everything that happens on a given day.  However, we are looking for someone who on any given day can rise to any given occasion.
