Following a 14-month search, the board of the Brandeis-Bardin Institute (BBI) voted unanimously Feb. 9 to elect Rabbi Lee T. Bycel as BBI's new chief executive officer.

Bycel brings to his position a wealth of experience in the Los Angeles Jewish community, including 10 years as the dean of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, and several years as president of the L.A. County Commission on Human Relations. In addition to his rabbinical ordination, Bycel holds a doctorate in ministry from the Claremont School of Theology. In 1999 he was awarded the title of Humanitarian of the Year by the National Conference of Community and Justice. Bycel returns to Southern California after two years as senior rabbi of Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple in Cleveland, Ohio. Tracker Pixel for Entry
