Congregation B’nai Israel, a Reform congregation in Boca Raton, has named Steve Allen as its new Executive Director/CEO.
CBI, which has many West Boca members, is located on Religion Row on the south side of Yamato Road between St. Andrews and Military Trail:
Allen joins Congregation B’nai Israel from Congregation Kol Tikvah in Parkland, where he served as the Executive Director since 2013. He is on the National Executive Board of NATA (National Association of Temple Administration), has co-chaired three NATA conferences, and has also received his FTA (Fellowship in Temple Administration) status last year; a prestigious endeavor only three percent of Executive Directors have achieved.
I’m thrilled to accept this key role of Executive Director/CEO at Congregation B’nai Israel. With my 18 years of experience I see a great opportunity to reinforce and expand our Synagogue’s warm and welcoming feeling for its members, and to continue to utilize all our resources to emphasize the key Jewish practices needed to build a true Jewish community both inside and outside our walls.
In addition to appointing Mr. Allen, CBI has updated its entire technology infrastructure.
According to Richard Pollack, Executive Board member and VP of Communications & Technology,
This is an exciting time for CBI, as we incorporate innovative tools to better engage our members, preschool and religious school families, along with the community at large. Having just celebrated our thirty year anniversary, launching a new website, logo and tagline is a perfect way to take us into the next chapter of growth.
