Who we are:

Congregation Beth Emeth, House of Truth, is an inclusive, inter-generational, egalitarian Conservative synagogue in Herndon, VA, in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. We consider ourselves "just the right size" – large enough to meet the spiritual, educational, and social needs of our members while preserving the warmth of a close-knit community. A member of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), Congregation Beth Emeth (CBE) offers a variety of opportunities for people to find meaning in and connection to Judaism.

We have recently marked 43 years as a congregation. What started with just 15 families coming together in a local community center to worship and learn together has grown into the CBE of today with our own beautiful sanctuary and education building, energetic religious, chai, and pre- schools, engaging adult educational programs, and award-winning auxiliary groups including Men's Club, Sisterhood, Hazak, and USY. All enhanced by a dedicated Board of Directors and a cadre of volunteers who lead religious services, spread tikun olam to the community, provide entertaining events, and so much more.

Interim Executive Director

CBE is searching for a full-time Interim Executive Director to manage its day-to-day operations while a search is conducted for a permanent Executive Director. The focus of this interim position will be to manage operations, confirm documentation of processes and policies, provide oversight for staff activities, and make recommendations for changes in synagogue operations.

The Executive Director should demonstrate an ability to make decisions quickly and appropriately on a wide variety of issues and tasks related to the congregational community and the functioning of the synagogue.

The Executive Director must possess excellent organizational, communications, and interpersonal skills. The Executive Director should have a diplomatic and gracious disposition in working with congregants, colleagues, professional staff, lay leadership, and the general public.

Religious School Director

The primary mission of the Beth Emeth Religious School (RS) is to support the development of Jewish identity, Jewish values and connection to the Jewish community through traditional learning with experiential opportunities with the development of a curriculum, in collaboration with the School Committee, that balances historical perspectives and modern day reflections to deliver well-rounded, accessible and stimulating education for all learners in a flexible environment. Our school program is built on connection: with classmates, the CBE community, and to Judaism and Jewish identity. 

The Director provides vision, leadership, and direction to the Congregation’s K to 10 formal education programs. Responsibilities include creation of a positive school climate; significantly updating current curriculum and course of study as we embark on a new model for our religious school, in consultation with, where applicable, the Rabbi and the School Committee; and the administration and supervision of the school.

Operationally, the Director reports to the Executive Director. The Rabbi provides advice and guidance in the educational activities of the Congregation. The Vice President for Education is the lay leader who provides oversight for the policies, procedures and budgetary issues of the school. The Director works closely with the Preschool Director and Youth Director to ensure consistent programming and continuity for the students and their families, and to provide a smooth transition among the grades and activities. This is a full-time position.

Food Service Coordinator

Congregation Beth Emeth is a synagogue of approximately 300 families located in Herndon, Virginia. Members of the community gather every week on Shabbat (Friday evenings and Saturday mornings). We also gather for communal meals during holidays and special events. 

The Food Service Coordinator, working 15-20 hours a week, is an important part of our Congregational team.  The person who will excel in this position is well organized and able to plan creative and diverse menus within a budget for weekly Saturday lunches, holidays, and special occasions. The coordinator is responsible for purchasing the ingredients or prepared foods needed for the week, to bake or cook for some special events, and to keep an accurate account of expenses. 

Most of our synagogue programming involving food takes place Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday—and so the ideal candidate will be able to work these days as their typical work schedule. However, we will consider some modifications to this schedule to ensure that a candidate who has all the necessary qualifications can be considered.
