Featured Positions

Chief Executive Officer

The PJCC seeks a dynamic and inspirational CEO who is a strategic and visionary leader—one who can execute on that vision and see beyond the walls of the current footprint of the organization; a professional with a proven track record in fundraising, a community partner, relationship builder and collaborator; and who possesses excellent staff and operational management skills. The CEO will lead the PJCC out of the pandemic, and into a new era as the premier destination for Jewish life in the northern and mid-Peninsula.

CEO Competencies

Provides Exemplary Executive Leadership
The CEO will be a warm and engaging leader who is accessible and listens to all viewpoints, demonstrates confidence, and manages through a positive approach. The CEO must be a highly accomplished relationship builder, comfortable with all levels of constituencies from the most seasoned lay leaders to new young leadership, professional staff, general members, and those not yet engaged. The CEO will lead efforts directed toward the continuation and enhancement of community among individuals, agencies, synagogues, and other religious organizations in the Northern Peninsula area. A forward thinking, energetic individual, the CEO will promote a culture of innovation and inclusion and be a change agent to create on-going excitement for the PJCC in the region.

Presents Visionary and Strategic Leadership
The CEO will promote an all-encompassing and compelling vision that captures the energy of the PJCC and robust, engaged and involved community going forward. The CEO will actively engage with other Jewish and secular community organizations, working to support existing collaborative programs and to envision new ways to work together. The CEO must see the big picture and be able to think outside the box – managing current issues while thinking about evolving business models in both the near and long term and well beyond the walls of the PJCC.

Proven Ability in Fundraising and Resource Development
The CEO must engage and steward donors and seek gifts of significance. Entrepreneurial and attuned to donor interests and concerns, the CEO will establish strategies and direct forward-looking practices in donor development to enhance and improve the community’s potential. Highly visible in the community, the CEO will reach out and cultivate new potential donors at all levels, including seeking grants from local and State government, foundations, and support from local businesses.

Demonstrates Skill in Operational Management
The CEO provides leadership to all aspects of the PJCC operations and is responsible for the day-to-day management and security of the PJCC. This includes an understanding of the physical plant, technical support systems and running the various businesses of the PJCC. Visibility and skilled responsiveness to members is essential. The CEO will be decisive in action, adaptable and accountable.

Displays Sound Staff Management Skills
The CEO will create and nurture a culture of positivity and productivity in the work environment, inspiring, engaging and empowering the professional staff of the PJCC. Through selecting, developing, and motivating staff, the CEO will foster innovation, teamwork, and collaboration to ensure that best practices and cutting-edge programs are the norm.


The ideal candidate will have:

  • Minimum of a bachelor’s degree with 10+ years of strategic leadership and management experience in JCCs, Jewish communal organizations, business, and/or non-profit sectors. An advanced degree is preferred.
  • Proven ability to build strong and lasting partnerships with Jewish, corporate, and other organizations, including other religious organizations, and engage key stakeholders and audiences.
  • Demonstrated track record of fundraising success, including knowledge of and participation in individual donor development, planned giving, grant procurement, capital campaigns, corporate sponsorship, and special events.
  • Excellence in organizational management with the ability to coach and manage staff and develop high-performance teams and set and achieve strategic objectives.
  • Ability to develop and drive both short-and long-term strategy for the organization.
  • Dynamic Leader to serve as the public face of the organization.
  • Strong analytical skills and ability to work with financial data to make key decisions.
  • Appreciation and real commitment to diversity; works easily with a broad range of people across all aspects of diverse cultures.
  • Past success working with a Board of Directors, committees, and volunteers with the ability to cultivate existing relationships and develop new ones.
  • General knowledge and understanding of Jewish culture, practices, and tradition.
  • Outstanding oral and written communication skills.
