Tim Goad, Facilities Manager

Tim Goad, Facilities Manager

Tim Goad has been BCC’s Facilities Manager through two BCC buildings, and one giant move! [That one of those buildings is no longer standing is through no fault of Tim!]

Tim was born in Baltimore, MD, and made his circuitous way to LA in 1983, with 32 states worth of adventures along the way.

He has worked with the City of Los Angeles in various youth programs, and he still works as a handyman and jack of all trades for numerous people and organizations.

In 2020, BCC celebrated with Tim a quarter-century of Tim’s good caretaking of our building, and of our members, staff, and clergy. Please note: Tim is not only the tallest, but he’s also the longest-serving employee BCC has ever had. And still counting!!!


Beth Chayim Chadashim is guided by a Board of Directors, elected directly by the membership for 2-year terms. The Board oversees BCC’s programs and services, provides fiscal oversight, hires professional staff, manages synagogue committees and formulates BCC’s long-term strategic plan.
