Ruler of the Synagogue

RULER OF THE SYNAGOGUE (Heb. רֹאשׁ הַכְּנֶסֶת; Gr. ἀρχισυνάγωγος, G801, ruler of a synagogue). The ruler of the synagogue was the man chosen to care for the physical arrangements of the synagogue services. The president of the synagogue would be the equivalent designation today.
