My family and I joined NJC in 2013. Having two sons in Religious School, I have taught either the 4th/5th or 6th/7th grade class for the past four years and will continue to teach Religious School for the 2018/2019 school year. I am currently serving on the search committee to find a new Rabbinic leader for NJC. I am planning for our oldest son’s Bar Mitzvah. My parents, Daniel and Deborah Moos, are also members of NJC.
The congregation and its future are very important to me and my family and I feel it is time to bring the leadership skills I have cultivated through my professional life as COO of People Who Think and previously residing as Secretary on the board of Mary Payton's Miracle Foundation to NJC. I gladly accept election to the Board of Trustees of NJC feeling that participation on the Search Committee and teaching the next generation of NJC members has given me the awareness and understanding needed to properly represent the desires of the congregation during this period of transition.

I converted in March of 2017, with Rabbi Deborah Zecher, after studying and attending services for over 15 years. I am honored to be a member of the Board of Trustees for Northshore Jewish Congregation as I feel this warmth of our congregation was a driving force in my conversion.
At home, I am privileged to help raise my 13-year old niece who will be a Bat Mitzvah next October.

We joined NJC in the early 2000’s several years after we moved to the Northshore. The first service we ever attended was in a former retail space in a strip mall. My daughter (who was around 9 years old and is not Jewish) opened her prayer book, looked at the Hebrew and “backward” pages, and said “I’m not smart enough to read this.”
I admittedly have not been a regular participant over the years in congregation activities. However, now that I have retired (yea!) and have more time to devote to personal activities, I have decided I would like to volunteer time to NJC. The vitality and success of any organization depends upon new people stepping up to help share the work, and what better way to contribute than to support my synagogue. I expect that my work with the synagogue will help me to become a better Jew and closer to G_d.
