Temple Judea has a proud history of women in leadership roles. We will celebrate the six women who have served as presidents of this congregation: Myrna Gordon, Kaye Bernstein, Jaci Feldman, Teri Levin, Ellen Israel and our current president, Gail Aspinwall. These women are worthy of our praise and gratitude.
We will also fête Rabbi Cantor Alison Wissot and our Executive Director Ellen Franklin, both whom started, full time at Temple Judea on the same day and are marking 15 years of continuous service. Rabbi Cantor Wissot and Ellen Franklin are nationally recognized leaders in their fields. More importantly, they are cherished role models, mentors and friends to hundreds of Temple Judea members with whom they have forged enduring bonds.
I know you will want to participate in this evening in a meaningful way. I know you will want to be with us to support all of our honorees. Join with us as we celebrate eight women who make our work possible. With your support, we can continue our sacred mission.
