My husband, Ira Klein, and I have been members of TIOH since 1999 when our son, Benjamin, entered the Nursery School. However, we were married at the Temple in 1992 during the Los Angeles riots that occurred over the Rodney King trial. What a weekend that was! Our love and commitment to this Temple have only grown since that eventful weekend. Our son attended the Day School and celebrated his Bar Mitzvah and confirmation at TIOH. My involvement at the Temple began by participating on the Finance Committee for several years. I also chaired the Annual Giving Campaign at the Day School during its first years. I have held positions as Temple President, Assistant Treasurer, Vice President of Administration, Vice President of Education and Vice President of Social Action. Professionally, I work for Capital One as a Senior Vice President in Multifamily Finance where I am responsible for the production of over $10B in real estate loans. I have a national team of professionals who work with large Multifamily owners, investors and developers across the country. I was previously with Fannie Mae for 18 years in the Multifamily area. Prior to Fannie Mae, I had a political appointment as Executive Director of the California Debt Limit Allocation Committee in Sacramento with State Treasurer, Phil Angelides, where I ran the tax-exempt bond program for the State of California.

I am honored and blessed to be part of Temple Israel’s tremendous community, led by clergy and staff whose commitment know no limits and who have guided my family through all of our life changing events.
