Dear Members of the Congregation,

The Board of Directors announces that after two years of dedicated leadership, Ran Ukashi will be stepping down as the Executive Director of Congregation Shaarey Zedek to pursue a new opportunity. We are extremely grateful for Ran's dedicated service to Shaarey Zedek and look forward to his continued success.

During this transition period, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Rena Secter Elbaze, our Director of Engagement and Education, and member of our lay clergy, will be stepping in as interim Executive Director. Rena who has been an integral part of our team since 2016 has a background in Communications, Business and Judaic Studies and has held professional roles in several of our local Jewish organizations. We are confident that she will do an excellent job in this role.

We want to reassure you that the Board and staff are committed to ensuring a smooth transition and continuity of our services and programs and thank you for your continued support and dedication to our community.

While we are sad to see Ran leave, we are excited about the next stage in Shaarey Zedek’s future and look forward to continuing to serve you under Rena’s leadership.


Neil Duboff,
