HELPS Word-studies

752 arxisynágōgos (from arxi, "first" and 4684 /spataláō, "synagogue") – properly, the chief elder (overseer) presiding over a local synagogue; a "ruler of a synagogue, an administrative officer, supervising the worship" (Abbott-Smith), i.e. the president ("chief") amongst other elders-overseers serving in a particular synagogue.

[Note the parallel with local church government in the NT. Like the ancient Jewish synagogue, a local NT church needs to be shepherded by a team ("plurality") of elders. See 4245 /presbyteros ("elder").]
