This year’s Slate for the Board of Trustees and Executive Committee is below. It includes two new Trustees, Charles Alter and Jennifer Wendy. Charlie is a principal at Louis Lefkowitz Realty where he manages a diverse family portfolio of commercial real estate properties. At the synagogue, he has been an active participant in Men’s Engagement, Shaaray Social Club and Sandwich Saturdays. However, you may know Charlie best from his leadership of Shaaray’s successful World Zionist Congress elections when he was affectionately known as Captain Charlie. A long-time participant in our MASA family program, Jen is a former securities and white-collar litigator at Clifford Chance. She was an active participant on the task force that worked with HIAS to sponsor a refugee family. Currently, Jen is Co-chair of the Shaaray Immigrant Task Force and our Project Cicero book drive. Two current members of the Board of Trustees are being nominated to join the Executive Committee to fill positions left open by officers whose terms are ending: Michele Silverstein as Vice President and Jason Criss as Secretary.
Three trustees (Debra Anisman, Paula Dwoskin Sitzer and Jill Franco) are completing their terms on the Board after many years of service as trustees and officers. Two officers are completing their terms on the Executive Committee: Michelle Ingber as Vice President and Kyle Solomon as Secretary. All have been dedicated members of the Board and have contributed in a wide variety of ways to the well-being of our community. We are grateful for their outstanding service to the congregation and look forward to their continued involvement in the future.
Please remember that you must register using this link in order to participate in the Annual Congregational Meeting. In mid-May, you will receive three additional documents you will need for the meeting: an agenda for the Annual Congregational Meeting, the minutes from the 2019 Annual Congregational Meeting, and the 2021 Budget.
We hope you continue to stay well during these challenging times and look forward to being together (albeit remotely) on June 2.
