Janna Lancaster


Janna Lancaster has been a member of Congregation Beth Shalom since she moved with her family to Columbia in 2008. She is the wife of David Lancaster, mother of three, and a PhD candidate and teaching assistant at the University of Missouri. Janna’s professional life revolves around environmental sustainability and urban development issues, while her personal life revolves around her family, friends, and community. As the chair of the Membership Committee at CBS, Janna enjoys welcoming people who are new to the CBS community helping them learn about all that CBS has to offer. She also co-chairs of the annual Hanukkah Party, the annual Campaign with Champagne, and as a dancer and former yoga instructor leads the occasional yoga session at CBS.

Janna is proud of CBS’s role in the lives of its congregants and the community, and is committed to supporting its efforts to remain a big tent congregation, welcoming families and individuals who represent the broad spectrum of Jewish humanity.
