Temple B’nai Israel Board meetings are held once a month. Unless the meeting is in executive session, it is open to members to observe. Meetings are usually scheduled on the third Sunday of the month at 10:00 a.m. at the Temple. If you are interested in attending a meeting, please check the calendar to verify the date of the meeting, and let the Board Chair know you are attending.
