Kol Ami Synagogue Hires Moss as New Executive Director

Sean Moss, Kol Ami Executive Director

After a thorough search for a new Executive Director, the Kol Ami Board of Trustees announced the hiring of Sean Moss.

Showcasing a 20-year breadth of global experience spanning business management, strategy, marketing, and corporate governance, Moss is poised to bring fresh perspectives to the continued success of Kol Ami. His collaborative work in digital marketing fundraising for his previous synagogue and Jewish school board underscores his commitment to building a sustainable, inclusive, and joyful Jewish community.

Moss and his family immigrated to the U.S. just under two years ago from South Africa and settled in Tucson after a brief time in Texas. Throughout his personal and professional journey, Moss, accompanied by his wife Kerry and son Eithan, has deeply valued the support of a nurturing Jewish environment. Outside the office, he is an avid golfer, a lover of sci-fi movies, a bagel and lox connoisseur, an obsessive reader, and a professional ball thrower for two well-traveled Boston terriers. He remarked, “This is an incredible opportunity to work with amazing people and grow a community where everybody feels at home.”

Moss is a recognized keynote speaker with a master’s degree in business and management and various qualifications spanning accounting, data analytics, and leadership.

He will begin his work at Kol Ami in mid-September. The Interim Executive Director, Michelle Blumenberg, will onboard and work with Moss for a month during the transition.

Moss and his family will be formally welcomed at Erev Rosh Hashanah services on Friday, September 15.
