Henry Feller

Henry Feller, our Executive Director Emeritus, worked at Beth Am from 2000-2017. Henry and his family were Beth Am congregants for eight years before Henry became executive director.

Several of Henry’s major accomplishments at Beth Am were the enhancement of the Annual Fund to the point that it became one of the most successful Annual Fund/High Holy Day Appeals in North America and the establishment of BAYITT (Beth Am Young Adult initiative for the  20s and 30s). He was key in enhancing and promoting programs and activities such as Kiddush lunches and Services in the Park.

Henry was awarded the certification of FSA (Fellow in Synagogue Administration) by NAASE (North American Association of Synagogue Executives), was a Board member of NAASE, and a Vice President of MATSAA (Mid-Atlantic Temple and Synagogue Association of America).
