Amy Rubin came on board as Executive Director in 2014, but her relationship with Temple Beth-El dates to 1989, when she and her husband joined the synagogue. A long-time lay leader, Amy has served as president, treasurer, trustee, and chair of several committees. Amy draws on her long experience as a congregant to inform her role on staff. She believes there is sacred work in even the mundane details of the facility, the finances, and ensuring things run smoothly. A Jew-by-choice, Amy particularly enjoys fostering the welcoming environment that captured her heart and led her to Judaism three decades ago.
Prior to joining Temple Beth-El’s staff, Amy spent five years as the Director of Administration at The Jewish Center, a Conservative congregation in Princeton, where she merged her commitment to congregational life with well-honed business skills developed over two decades in the private sector.
Amy resides in Hillsborough with her husband, Ken, and their three daughters, Amy (a teacher in our religious school), Kayla, and Talia. She enjoys cooking, ancestry research, and escaping into novels.
Amy believes there are no traif questions, so no matter the question, ask Amy. If she doesn’t know the answer, she’ll find it. Amy is also happy to help you wherever you may be on your Jewish journey. You can reach her at 908-722-0674, ext. 310 or via e-mail.
