Our Board of Directors is elected by the community to serve a one year term.
The OJCA could not run without the dedication and hard work of this group of people.
On behalf of all OJCA members, our Board members lead us with economic, management, and organizational decisions that allow the Okanagan Jewish Community Centre and Beth Shalom Synagogue to prosper well into the future.
In addition to the Executive Board, the OJCA has several committees that help sustain us!
If you would like to volunteer for a committee or to otherwise get involved, please contact one of our Board members. Thank you!
