Beth Goodman

Executive Director



Beth moved to Santa Rosa from Toronto in 1990, with her husband Garry and their two children. Beth has been involved in our Jewish community ever since, first serving on the Camp Chai Committee as a member, and then as its Chair. She became the Camp Chai Administrative Director in 1993. She also led Simcha Sunday, (sponsored at that time by the Jewish Community Federation). When the JCC was formed, it was an easy transition to becoming a JCC Program Director. Over the years Beth has coordinated Camp Chai, Simcha Sunday, the Jewish Music Festival, the Spring Gala, and other programs and events sponsored by the JCC. In September 2004, she retired to enjoy some unstructured leisure time. Now as the Executive Director, Beth rolls up her sleeves once again to bring her experience and energy to the growth and excitement ahead for the JCC and the greater Jewish community.
