Leadership

Edie Mandel, President
Edie's parents were life members of Temple Am Echad, where she attended religious school and was confirmed.  Her daughter, Janna, had her Bat Mitzvah at Temple in 2001, and Edie was an adult Bat Mitzvah in 2014. Edie served on the Sisterhood Board for several years, and she has been a member of the Temple Board of Directors for 5 years. She has also co-chaired the successful Jewish Film Series for 6 years. Edie is looking forward to keeping our current members engaged in Temple activities and getting our new members involved in all that we have to offer - adult education, tot programs, youth programs, Caring Community and more.

 

 
Jared Berry, Finance Vice President
Jared is a life-long member of Temple Am Echad. He attended the Early Childhood Center, became Bar Mitzvah, a confirmand, and graduate of the Hebrew High School.  As a teen, he held leadership positions in the youth group and served actively as a madrich. After traveling to Israel on Birthright in 2013, he became a member of the Temple staff, serving as a Hebrew teacher, Director of Youth Programs, and most recently served as Director of Education (2016-2019).  Since joining the Board of Directors, he has served as co-chair of the High Holy Day committee and chair of the Technology committee, overseeing the implementation of our live-streaming system.

 

 

Howard Bernstein, Membership Vice President
Howard is a relatively new member of Temple Am Echad, joining with his wife Adrienne in 2017 when they were overwhelmed by the warmth of the Temple community.  During his time at Temple, Howard has served on the Temple Board, Men's Club Board and has been a fixture in the Temple Choir, Kol Echad.  After retiring as an attorney with an insurance company in 2021, Howard was seeking a new and meaningful challenge in life and was gratified and honored to have been elected to serve as an officer of the Temple.  He is dedicated to help Am Echad continue to flourish and grow.
