Jacqui and Stephen Garfinkel joined EDRS in 1987 and Stephen had served in every Trustee position other than Treasurer and Chair, but has learned closely from some of our great past chairs. Many will remember him from the mega-shabbatot celebrations.
Stephen believes that the running of a synagogue must be professional and proper at all times - but at the end of the day, he says, "we are not a business. We need to serve our members professionally and compassionately through some of their happiest and most challenging of times."
Stephen promises EDRS his heart and soul.
We wish him a strong and successful journey as Chair. Behatzlacha.
