LaMarrServing on the board of trustees at Temple Israel is an honor. My service is inspired by the Temple’s commitment to diversity and social justice as well as the collective and open relationship among clergy, staff, lay leaders and all the families of TIOH. As a trustee, I have served on the Nursery School Director search committee, multiple nominating committees, as past Co-Chair of the Family and Youth Education Commission, am involved in social justice work and the annual TIOH Christmas dinner project. I also serve as board secretary. My family has been part of the Temple Israel community for over a decade, where our gratitude for an enriching and meaningful experience of Jewish life continues to grow every day. Our connection to the Religious School has been a thriving arena of engagement for all of us, providing an intellectual, spiritual and social base for our children. I am grateful to be a part of a synagogue that continues to grow and where the entire TIOH community is always at the forefront of progressive Jewish thought. Professionally, I am a marriage and family therapist, specializing in early intervention work with children and families
