Placement Update

While the reorganization of the Joint Placement Commission continues, information about Placement Services for NAASE members may be arranged for by contacting NAASE Executive Director Susan Kasper, FSA at You can reach the NAASE Placement Chair Harvey M. Brenner, FSA, FTA by e-mail. Placement Consultants continue to be available by e-mail as well. Those wishing help with developing or updating a resume, may contact the Placement Resume Consultant by e-mail for assistance. Every member of NAASE is urged to comply with the existing rules and regulations when applying for a position.

It is considered a violation of our code to:

  • Pass along this information to a non-NAASE member
  • Interview or apply directly or indirectly to a listed position while not on placement status
  • Apply to any USCJ synagogue position through a newspaper ad
  • Apply to any USCJ synagogue position through an employment agency

All position listings below are sent to our members in confidence. We will lend you every assistance in absolute strictest confidence. Unless indicated differently, each position below is for an Executive Director or Synagogue Administrator.

Important Reminder!

Please be mindful of the long-standing procedure by which candidates submit their resumes directly to the congregational contacts, and that two important steps need to be fulfilled, as well:

  1. Candidates interested in placement must register with the Joint Placement Commission
  2. Candidates must inform the Commission’s Director of their intention to send resumes to congregations

In cases where only the salary is listed, candidates should be mindful to raise the question at an appropriate point, about the full compensation package being offered, including factors such as reimbursement for relocation expenses and interview travel expenses. Increasingly, candidates are advised to ask, again at an appropriate point, about the Search Committee’s notification and follow-up process and anticipated time-frame.

Being mindful of the universal benefit of having everyone across the Movement becoming acquainted with NAASE . . . should you decide to pursue any of these opportunities, please do be sure to indicate that you heard about it through NAASE!
