The President is charged with establishing a Constitution Committee every five (5) years to review the Constitution and recommend needed amendments.  The President also may establish a Constitution Committee at any time to consider amendments.

After operation under the most recent amendments approved in May 2019, in light of a most trying and challenging year and at the request of various members, the President established a Constitution Committee to address four (4) specific areas needing attention --  (1) to allow for non-Jewish spouses or partners to be synagogue members; (2) to allow for congregational meetings to be rescheduled in the event of an emergency; (3) to allow for remote and hybrid meetings (both remote and in-person at the same time) and (4) to allow for Board vacancies to be filled between annual congregational meetings.

The proposed amendments were drafted, discussed and unanimously recommended by the Constitution Committee.  The proposed amendments were presented to the Board and discussed at its regular February 11, 2021 meeting. The proposed amendments were approved by the Board at its regular March 11, 2021 meeting.  The proposed amendments must be approved by at least two-thirds of the members present and voting at the Annual Meeting on Sunday, May 23, 2021.
