Congregation Shaarie Torah Appoints Next Executive Director
Announcement from the Board President, Phil Cohen

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am delighted to share the news that Gary Fifer has been offered and accepted the position as Congregation Shaarie Torah's next Executive Director. Gary will join us on October 2, in time for the High Holidays.

The Board selected Gary following a national search process, which began early this year. Gary stood out as a leader with extensive synagogue management experience, a deep commitment to Jewish traditions, and a keen interest in efforts to strengthen Shaarie Torah and grow our congregation. Gary is currently Executive Director of Congregation Har HaShem in Boulder Colorado, where he worked with Rabbi Josh Rose - before the Rabbi joined Shaarie Torah.
