We’re pleased to announce that this year’s deserving honorees are our Treasurers, past and present, Helene Smith and Jennifer Tattenbaum.
Helene proudly served both Progressive Temple Beth Ahavath Shalom and B’ShERT, first as Financial Secretary and then as Treasurer for a total of 20 years. Her many years of work in an accounting firm and her commitment to temple helped guide us through the challenging first few years after the consolidation. Helene still found the time to become catering chair and to make sure that all Temple events which required food were properly cared for.
Jennifer took over from Helene in 2021 and helped manage the transition to our new accounting system (ShulCloud). As Treasurer, Jennifer used her facility with, and love for, numbers to unravel glitches and put in place processes that will carry us forward for years to come. Jennifer works full-time, has a child in B’ShERT’s Religious School and celebrates her family’s simchas while continuing to make sure Temple finances are taken care of.
We continue to be blessed to be able to keep our community together and to have members who volunteer their time and talents to keep B’ShERT active and well.
