President Joel Shayne
Everyone I talk to wants the same thing – to keep B’nai Moshe a healthy, vibrant center of traditional Judaism. The level of conviction and devotion I’ve seen is unbelievable. I am proud to follow in the foot steps of all the past presidents who have kept the B’nai Moshe tradition intact for the last 102 years. The best is yet to come!
I have been married to Ruth for 36 years, and mainly known around the synagogue as Ruth’s husband. We have been members of B’nai Moshe for 32 years, beginning in Oak Park. I was previously Men’s Club President / Co-President from 1993- 1999. I was fund raising co-chair (with Barbara Weiner) for Cantor Berris’ 10th anniversary celebration. I was also fund-raising chairman (with Carol Pollack’s assistance) for our customized Siddur Tefillah L’ Moshe prayer book. For the last 4 years, I was the Treasurer of B’nai Moshe. Professionally, I have been a financial advisor for the past 27 years. I am honored to dedicate my two year term as president to my wife’s grandfather Frank Cohen, who was president of his shul in Appleton, Wisconsin for 33 years.
