Dr. Ray Goldstein

Dr. Ray Goldstein has served in several volunteer positions at USCJ, including serving four years as International President. He has served as president of two kehillot and served on the board of a third. He has a long history of service on not-for-profit boards and has developed a keen interest and extensive background in board governance and management.

Dr. Goldstein’s career has included eight years teaching at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. He has served as president and owner of a multi-faceted technology firm in Rochester, Minnesota for 10 years, having begun his career there in sales. A major business segment of that firm was dedicated to customer service for a large healthcare client. While in Rochester he also served as managing partner for a start-up home healthcare firm.

In April 2010 Ray joined the staff of USCJ to serve as a resource to USCJ member kehillot, first serving as Interim Director for the Central district. Subsequently he served as Kehilla Relations Team Leader, supervising all Kehilla Relationship Managers (KRMs). For a brief period, he also took on the additional duties of Acting Chief Kehilla Officer for USCJ, overseeing the activities and staff of the Kehilla Strengthening and Transformation (KST) Department.

While employed by USCJ, Dr. Goldstein relinquished his role as a past president. Once his tenure as USCJ staff ended, Ray resumed his position on the USCJ board.

Dr. Goldstein and his wife Jody, a retired elementary school principal, live in Rochester Minnesota. They are members of Beth Jacob Congregation, Mendota Heights, Minnesota and Beth El Synagogue, Omaha, Nebraska.
