Earlier this month, the Steering Committee of Reform Jewish Voice of New York State met at the Temple Israel of Northern Westchester at our yearly gathering to set the stage for an exciting year of Jewish advocacy in pursuit of social justice in the Empire State.
At the meeting, the Steering Committee welcomed four new members: Joel Magid of Westchester Reform Temple (Scarsdale), Jane Meyers of Brooklyn Heights Synagogue (Brooklyn), Marc Landis of Congregation Rodeph Sholom and Rabbi Rachel Grant Meyer also of Congregation Rodeph Sholom (New York).
We are also excited to announce that Joel Elliot of Temple B’rith Kodesh in Rochester, NY will join Barbara Zaron as a co-chair of RJV. Joel replaces Rabbi Jennifer Jaech of Temple Israel of Northern Westchester (Croton-on-Hudson, NY) after her incredible three years as co-chair. Rabbi Jaech remains on the Steering Committee, and will continue to provide critical guidance and wisdom for RJV.
