Executive Director Rita Jacobs Rita Jacobs, a past president of her home congregation, joined our senior staff in August 2002 with a wealth of knowledge about Judaism, synagogue operations, and the Union of American Hebrew Congregations.After having been on the UAHC's national Commission on Social Action, Rita was asked to serve on the regional board that encompasses New Jersey and the West Hudson Valley.
In that capacity, Rita
was instrumental in implementing the Visiting Stranger program that helps congregations assess their strengths and weaknesses as seen through the eyes of a first-time attendee at services.Intimately familiar with the resources of the UAHC
has shared that information at workshops with multiple congregations.Before joining us, Rita was the Law and Humanities Coordinator at Forest Hills High School, a position that included administration as well as teaching.
For any questions about the congregation, rental of space for a simcha, or programs in the temple, Rita
