Among several volunteer positions, I have served on the board of Temple Beth El, as Chair of Adult Education, Chair of Religious Practices Transition, as well as Vice President and President. I have been a board member of the JFED for two years, served as co-chair for Yom Ha’atzmaut 2019, and recently as Vice President per appointment by Janet Wechter.
