In her role as president, Avolio is responsible for leading the Board of Trustees, including the Executive Committee, to fulfill the mission of Congregation B’nai B’rith — to be a diverse, inclusive community of individuals and families building together a warm and vibrant house of living Judaism — and work side by side with clergy and staff.

She is a graduate of the Irving and Marlyn Bernstein Leadership Institute at Congregation B’nai B’rith and has served on the board for three years.

“We are very excited about our new president,” Teton-Landis said. “We welcome Hallie’s wisdom, vitality and enthusiasm.”

Avolio succeeds Daniel Hochman, who will now serve as immediate past president. Other new members to the Congregation B’nai B’rith board this term include Sheba Lux, Richard Parisse, Karen Polinsky, Bob Ingrum, Sharon Goldberg, Evely Laser Shlensky and Barbara Ben-Horin.

Avolio’s other volunteer activities include sitting on the Board of Directors of the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
