Proposed New Bylaws for Congregation Bet Haverim

This proposal amends and re-states the Bylaws for our Congregation. This proposal must be affirmed by a majority (50 percent plus one) of our Partners.

Earlier this year the CBH Board of Directors devoted considerable effort to preparing a proposed revision of the CBH Bylaws, which had last been revised in 2000 and were sadly out of date. The Board’s proposed revision was completed and approved by the Board on May 8, 2018, and presented to CBH partners for consideration and approval at the last CBH Annual Meeting.

Unfortunately, an insufficient number of partners were in attendance at that Annual Meeting to approve the new Bylaws, so we are now seeking that approval via a written ballot, which you should receive in the mail.

View a copy of the revised Bylaws as proposed by the Board.

At your earliest opportunity, please mark and return your ballot(s) to CBH, either by mail or by delivering the ballots to at the CBH administrative office.

Questions about the Bylaw proposal should be directed to Directors Steve Cohan, at  or Steve Cohen, at .
