Our Staff

The people who work at Temple Israel are not just staff.
Here’s your chance to get to meet them online.

Heather Cohen Executive director

Heather Cohen has been Temple’s Executive Director for thirty years. She is often the first person from Temple that newcomers and members speak to or meet. She is able to connect people to each other and to what Temple has to offer. When someone is in need, it is usually Heather who offers up a kind word and makes a connection to someone who can help. Heather is a source of knowledge, advice and assistance, often behind the scenes and outside of the limelight. With a warm smile and kind word. And with a special interest in dogs large and small.
