My wife Diane Sherer and I have been Temple Israel of Hollywood members for 16 years. We came in through the Nursery School and knew in our hearts, this was the place for us. We’ve raised two sons at the Temple, Ike and Oren, and we’re proud to say that between the two of them we have now attended every one of the Temple Schools; Nursery School, Day School, Religious School, and Teen Program. My wife has served as President of the Day School Parent Association, and we’ve both been Day School Ambassadors leading tours for new families. In addition, I serve on the Chesed Committee, conducting shivah services for Temple members in mourning at their homes. This is my eighth year on the Board of Trustees, where I served one year as Assistant Secretary, five years as Vice President for the Arts, and now my first year as Vice President of Administration and Governance .

In my spare time, I’m a screenwriter. I write with a partner, my best friend for 36 years, with whom I attended Jewish Day School in Philadelphia. Our credits include The Family Man, Evolution, When In Rome, The Minutemen, and Old Dogs. We’re proud to say we’ve worked with five Oscar winners, none of whom have won a damn thing for our movies.
