I am honored to serve as President of the Board of Trustees for Temple Israel of Hollywood. I have previously held positions as TIOH’s Vice President of Administration and Governance, Vice President of Social Action, Co-Chair of the Senior Rabbi Search Committee and Interim Rabbi Search Committee, and as Co-Chair of the Nursery School Parent Association. In 2016, I completed a fellowship for Jewish leadership with the Wexner Foundation, and currently serve on the North American Board for the Union for Reform Judaism as a member of the Oversight Committee, as Vice Chair of the Commission for Social Action for the Religious Action Center (RAC) of the URJ, and on the leadership teams of CLUE’s Black and Jewish Justice Alliance and RAC-CA.

Professionally, I worked as a criminal and capital defense lawyer in New York City, and as the Director of Youth Justice Programs at the Vera Institute of Justice also in New York. Currently, I am a consultant for non-profits specializing in issues of risk, strategic planning and organizational management. My husband, Eric Krautheimer, and I joined TIOH in 2008, when we moved to Los Angeles. Our children, Elise and Evan attended the Nursery School, Religious School, and then Teen Program following their B’nai Mitzvahs. And I’m especially proud to welcome Elise to the Board this year as the president of our Temple Youth Board (HoTY).
