My passion for the Reform Jewish Community was following in the footsteps of my predecessors. In that light I have spent 23 years serving on the boards of trustees of three Reform Congregations: Emanuel Congregation in Chicago, Illinois; Temple Judea in Tarzana, California; and Temple Adat Shalom in San Diego, California, where I continue to serve as an octogenarian member of the Board of Trustees. Part of my purpose on this earth must be to serve the Jewish Community and to leave a loving legacy to my congregation.
