Leslie Valas
Leslie Valas Leslie Valas has been involved in the East Bay Jewish community for over 30 years. She and her family have been an active part of Jewish day schools, Jewish camping, Israel programs, and their synagogue community. After completing her tenure as president of Congregation Beth Israel, she remained passionately involved with her community. Her interest in Kevah was inspired by watching her adult daughter and son-in-law's enthusiasm for their Kevah group. Leslie decided she wanted to create a Kevah group for women in her demographic, and thus Cool Women, one of Kevah's first groups, was born. Leslie's Berkeley life involves family,friends and community, visits to the bay area art museums and walking the beautiful bay area outdoor trails. Professionally, she is a marriage and family therapist in private practice.

For female leadership, Berkeley Orthodox shul gets the gold | j. the Jewish news weekly of Northern California

"It's like basketball," said Leslie Valas, who served as Beth Israel's president from 2006 to 2008.
"Women have control of the ball. Women have access to the physical experience of being with the Torah. That does not happen at every Orthodox congregation." Some Orthodox congregations forbid women from taking high leadership roles such as the presidency. Valas recalled a recent visit to Philadelphia where she toured an Orthodox synagogue. When she mentioned to her guide that she was a past president of a shul, the guide told her "That wouldn't happen here." In addition to Valas, the other past presidents are Katy Tornheim (1973-1974), Joan Sopher (1975-1978), Maxine Winer (1986-1988 and 1992-1993), Barbara Budnitz (1988-2000), Denise Resnikoff (2002-2004) and Rebecca Landes (2010-2012).
