There were 449 eligible voters who owned temple cards (seated and standing). Thirteen men and four women ran for election to the board.

According to §114 of the Statutes of IKG Vienna, the existing temple board will now be consulted on this election result. Subsequently, in its next meeting on June 26th, 2023, the religious board will appoint the new temple board (at least six and up to eight men, as well as at least three and up to four women) for a term of up to five years.
A big thank you goes to the employees of the General Secretariat and the membership service for organizing and conducting the election. I would also like to express my heartfelt thanks to all the candidates who have served and continue to serve the city temple, as well as to all the voters.
