I am so grateful to be a part of this diverse, welcoming and engaging synagogue and could not be prouder of the work we do here. I have been a member of Temple Beth Avodah my entire life. From the time I was able to walk and talk, this community has been an integral part of my Jewish identity. I was consecrated, attended Hebrew school and religious school, celebrated my Bat Mitzvah and was vice president of BAYGL – all right here at TBA! I am so fortunate that my three children Sam, Emma and Olivia are also sharing the same milestones here.
Over the years I have had the great opportunity of engaging in various leadership roles. From participating in community organizing, co-chairing our Torah Scribing project, 50th Anniversary and most recently Rabbi Stern’s 20th. I have learned a tremendous amount and have met amazing people.
I truly believe there is something for everyone here at TBA. It is a sacred space to worship, socialize, participate in social justice and build community. If you are a prospective member I encourage you to check us out. If you are interested in getting more involved and becoming a part of our leadership, please reach out and we will find the right role for you.
We welcome people with all abilities to our programs, events and services. It is our goal that everyone who enters our building may participate as fully as they wish. Our building is wheelchair accessible and hearing assistance devices are available when needed. Please reach out to us with any special need requests.
Stacy Schwartz, President
