Jonathan Shikora resizedOur family have been Temple members since 2011 after my wife Meredith and I joined a Parent and Me class for our daughter, Macie. Macie and her younger brother, Max have now both graduated from the Bay-Nimoy Early Childhood Center and attend Religious School at TIOH. In 2017, I served on the nominating committee for the board of trustees and later that year was part of the Atidenu leadership program lead by Rabbi Missaghieh and Rabbi Rosove.

I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and am a proud graduate of the University of Wisconsin in Madison. After pursuing a career as a professional actor in New York and Los Angeles, I returned to the UW for law school, graduating with honors in 1997.

Professionally, I am currently a partner at Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler, Feldman and Clark, an entertainment law firm serving mostly individual artists in negotiations concerning film, television and live stage.

After starting my legal career in the Century City office of O’Melveny and Meyers, I worked as in-house counsel at CBS Productions before joining Lichter Grossman in 2000. I became a partner of the firm in 2005.
