In Jewish synagogues the religious authority is usually called the Rabbi. A synagogues will often have a Gabbai (Hebrew: גבאי) is a person who assists in the running of a synagogue and ensures that the needs are met, for example the Jewish prayer services run smoothly. However, since synagogues tend to have many congregants, you may find an assistant Rabbi, secretary and even a Board with a chairman and other officials - similar to any other organization.
