Janet is our Temple Administrator. She has been with Hevreh since January 2011. Before becoming Hevreh’s Temple Administrator, Janet, her husband Tim and two daughters, Alison and Ruthie joined Hevreh in 2003 after moving to the Berkshires from Madison, WI. Both daughters confirmed from Hevreh and our now pursuing college degrees in Brooklyn, NY and Amherst, MA.
Janet has a background in accounting, general operations and management. She is responsible for the day to day operations at Hevreh, oversees our custodial staff and handles all things Hevreh. She is a member of MATSA (the Massachusetts Association of Temple and Synagogue Administrators). When not at Hevreh, Janet can often be seen walking through Great Barrington with her lovable Sheltie, Milo.
Jodie is our program associate. Jodie joined the Hevreh team in August of 2017. Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Jodie graduated from the University of Arizona in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics. After graduating, Jodie worked as a nanny in England then traveled through Europe and Israel for six weeks-her greatest adventure yet.
Jodie is excited to get to know congregants through her dual positioning in the Hevreh office working with Janet and in the religious school working with Rabbi Gordon. When not at Hevreh she can be found drinking coffee, tea, or seltzer while deeply invested in a book.
